Friday night, November 18th 2016 marked The Institute of Biology of Ireland annual awards to the highest performing students in this year’s Leaving Certificate Biology examination. This activity encourages interest in Biology at all levels in Ireland. Saoirse Pagel (LC class of 2016) was presented with a gold medal and a certificate in recognition of her excellent achievement. In addition, her teacher of Biology, Ms. K. Ward, received a certificate of commendation, and Dominican College was presented with a certificate. This was a lovely occasion offering a real celebration of all the work that the students, their families, teachers and schools put into attaining such high standards in biology.
We would like to thank last night's audience members who attended the opening night of Beauty and the Beast which had to be cancelled after a local power cut. All those who attended were treated to a singsong and we really appreciate the good humour shown throughouot by all.
Tuesday, 29th November, has been selected as an alternative date and we will honour all tickets sold, or issue refunds where necessary.
