“The Power of You” event at St Ronan's College has been labelled as an "outstanding success"
The event - which was held in the Seagoe Hotel, Portadown last Friday - was attended by a range of guest speakers including Stephen Nolan, BBC Broadcaster, Dawson Stelfox the first person from Ireland to climb Mount Everest, Dr Frances Weldon, Almac STEM Manager, Dan Lowes a former Red Arrows Pilot, Stephen Watson, BBC Broadcaster and Kidney transplant recipient, plus Stephanie McConville, former past pupil and ‘Lead Female’ in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Musical Gala Concert (European Arena Tour).
“The event was an outstanding success. Through their own remarkable life achievements, our guest speakers left our Year 13 & Year 14 pupils with fascinating insights as to how they can achieve their dreams if they understand the power within themselves,” said school Principal, Mrs Fiona Kane.
“We were delighted that along with our pupils and staff we were also joined by representatives from the Department of Education, the Education Authority, our College Board of Governors, Principals from our local Primary Schools as well as representatives from local businesses.
“Pupils at the Heart of our School and School at the Heart of our Community, remains a key focus for the College. With this wonderful event and the launch of the St Ronan’s College Foundation today - ambitious plans are being laid down to support the delivery of our dreams for the young people of Lurgan."
