Wicklow teaching graduates receive top awards

Three Wicklow students – all Masters graduates in Primary or Post-Primary Education – had double cause for celebration after achieving ‘top of their class’ status at the annual Hibernia College conferring ceremony which was held at Dublin’s Convention Centre recently.

Maeve Duffy, a teacher at Loreto Secondary School Bray, was honoured with the overall Student of the Year Award – presented by the College to the student in each cohort with the highest grade across the Post-Primary programme. 

Sarah Joyce, a teacher at Temple Carrig School, Greystones, was honoured with the Research Award, awarded to the student in each cohort who achieves the highest grade in the Research module on the College’s Post-Primary programme.

Ciara Man, a teacher at St Cronan’s BNS in Bray, was honoured with the overall Student of the Year Award and Research Award on her Primary programme. In addition, Ciara also received the INTO Vere Foster Medal – awarded by the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO) for ‘Outstanding Performance in School Placement’.

The Wicklow graduates were amongst 900 from all 26 counties to graduate with Primary or Post-Primary teaching qualifications from Hibernia College.

Congratulating them and other graduates, who she described as ‘innovative, collaborative and highly competent,’ Dr Mary Kelly, Academic Dean at Hibernia College, said all in attendance “will make a valuable contribution to their chosen profession and to the students they teach”.
