"It was great to see some ex North Lakes children gaining prizes and the gymnastics, drama, music, and dance was hugely impressive."
- Head Teacher, North Lakes School
"Just a quick note to say how very much I enjoyed UCC's prize day...! The whole occasion was beautifully planned,
and went like clockwork. The students are such a credit to the school - and themselves: I thought there were some really remarkable talents among the actors (loved the Headmistress, and the group work...), the gymnasts (that was
very spectacular) and the musicians (the last girl who sang has a wonderful blues voice). I was so glad to have been there, there was a real sense of community and belonging."
"Just to say that I was blown away by this morning's Prize Day, I feel so proud to be associated with UCC. Congratulations to everyone."
"Having attended this afternoon for the second year running, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to congratulate
both you and your team on what is a fabulous initiative! What is thoroughly evident is the passion for teaching from your team, and the pride in the school from your students, well done! As with last year, it was an incredibly uplifting event, and one which we are proud to support, and will continue to do so in the future."
- North Lakes Hotel, Sponsor
"We just want to say how much we enjoyed the UCC Prize Day of 25th of October. Obviously an incredible amount of preparation goes into such things and the overall effect was very, very impressive - and the gymnasts were astounding! The choice of guest speaker was just right - in that he suited the demographic - but he was also very natural - which was refreshing. This kind of event - as you well know - works on so many levels in terms of nurturing both pupil esteem (our Alice was ‘made up’ to be part of this) and school identity in the community. Listening to the buzz amongst the sponsors was gratifying."
"I would just like to say a big thank you for being invited to the Prize Day and what an amazing event. I was so proud of being a parent with a child here at UCC but also as a member of staff. Well done to all who were involved and for putting on a spectacular event."
