Niamh Durcan, Class of 2012, shared the following words with past pupils and current parents at the Loreto College Foxrock 75th Anniversary Dinner 2017. Niamh's sentiments encapsulate the ethos and culture of Loreto College Foxrock, our students, our teachers and support staff and our wonderful past pupils.
Good evening everyone, my name is Niamh Durcan, and I am from the class of 2012. I just want to start off by taking this opportunity to thank you for inviting me to speak tonight at this 75th Anniversary Dinner. It is a huge honour to have been asked to speak amongst and in front of such accomplished and admirable women. Unlike the other two presenters tonight, I am still a student so I haven’t yet figured out how to make my millions or take over the world… but I’ll come back to you when I do.
I’ll start off by introducing myself; I’m 23, I did my Leaving Cert in Loreto in 2012, and from there I went on to study Business and Law in UCD. I graduated from B&L in 2016 with a 1st class honours and went straight into the Marketing Practice Masters in Smurfit, where I’m currently studying. People often ask me what job I want to get after I finish, and I must admit, I have great plans for the future, I’m just not going to tell you about them until I figure them out for myself first.
I started in Loreto in 2006. I came in from St Brigid’s in Cabinteely, not too far down the road, and I still remember the anticipation and indeed nervousness I felt starting on day one. I was so excited to make new friends and to get a taste of life in secondary school… I was a little less excited about the colour of the uniform and the size of my schoolbag filled with books.
