In Loreto Balbriggan we believe that it is very important to acknowledge academic achievement in school, as it is the essence of our day to day work. Prizegiving has been an integral part of our school calendar since the establishment of the school in 1857 and this whole school occasion provides an opportunity for the school to recognise both the academic and extracurricular efforts and achievements of students.
