Teaching Graduate Receives Top Award

Mary Lydon Hibernia College Graduations

A Dublin Primary Education graduate – Mary Lydon, a teacher at St. Patrick’s National School in Castleknock – had double cause for celebration after achieving ‘top of her class’ status at the annual Hibernia College conferring ceremony which was held at Dublin’s Convention Centre recently.

In addition to receiving her Masters qualification, Mary was honoured with the Religious Education Award – presented by the College to the student from each cohort who achieves the highest grade in religious education on the Primary programme.

This year, Mary was amongst 900 graduates from all 26 counties to graduate with Primary or Post-Primary teaching qualifications from Hibernia College.

Congratulating Mary 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”.
