Congratulations to Dr Cotter, Mrs Matchett, the languages department and all the students involved in ensuring that Inst has achieved the recognition of an International School Award, 2012-15. The school was successful in the rigorous testing process which requires curriculum-based international work in schools.
Inst awards Larmor and Hyndman Scholarships to top performing students with 3+ A/A* A Levels. Congratulations to the boys named below and I wish them every success at University. I would also take this opportunity to wish all our Year 14 leavers further success as they leave Inst for Higher Education or employment.
Staff and pupils of Inst were thrilled on Friday to welcome Sunday Life Unsung Hero Award winner Willie Gregg, founder of charity Willie’s Orphan Fund, along with some of his colleagues and a few of the orphans he has been helping since the Tsunami in Thailand in 2004 devastated the lives and livelihoods of so many people and left thousands of children destitute. Willie’s Orphan Fund aims not just to look after and pay for the education of orphans but to also nurture them in a caring environment offering them an alternative family.
