Congratulations to all prize winners this year. The broadcaster John Murray was our guest speaker. John’s daughter Catherine graduated from Beaufort in 2011. He spoke to the girls about his own experience of education and how important it is to be kind to ourselves. His message to our Sixth Years especially was very poignant. He acknowledged the role of exams at this stage in their lives but he emphasised that self value is more important than anything as we journey through life. Thank you to John for your inspiring words.
Thank you also to our Sixth Years, and our outgoing Head Girls Ella, Eve and Laura, who spoke emotionally to the whole school one last time. The Sixth Years were very generous with their words and gifts.
Congratulations to Niamh, our incoming Head Girl and to Lisa and Rua, our incoming deputies, as well as prefects and sports captains. The girls were elected by both students and staff and we wish them and all Fifth Years well for the coming year with their new responsibilities and challenges.
Well done and thank you also to Ms Costello, Ms Cody and Mr Charles who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make Prize giving 2014 run so smoothly.
