'A proud and wonderful afternoon' was the thoughts of the teachers, family and friends of the 82 local students, who were recognised at the Celebrate with CCEA Awards ceremony on Thursday 7 April at Titanic Belfast.
The ceremony celebrated learners who displayed outstanding achievement, dedication and commitment in their CCEA examinations.
CCEA's Chief Executive, Justin Edwards met each of the winners on their arrival and spoke at the event ceremony. 450 guests, including parents, principals and teachers, heard him congratulate the learners for their achievements saying:
This year's inclusive event gives a sense of the range of wonderful achievements by learners from across the education system. The hard work, perseverance, and personal qualities are what set these learners apart and why we are celebrating their success. Well done to all of our winners, and to all of the people who have played their part in their success.
At CCEA we try to put the learner at the centre of everything we do. We think hard about the knowledge and skills you need for life and future employment, and work with teachers, tutors, employers and other partners to provide the courses and support you need.
