This year, to mark the 50th Jubilee of Ardscoil La Salle and the Tercentenary of our founder Jean Baptiste De La Salle, we have a special award for the student that has lived the Lasallian ethos to its fullest.

This student has always exemplified the Lasallian tradition of education for all in a caring and welcoming atmosphere during her time here. In the last few years this student has been the driving force behind our winning entries in the national Lasallian Family competition and our leading representative at the Lasallian gathering in Knock. We have great pleasure in awarding the Lasallian Award to Emilie Kane

As a Lasallian community, we value the holistic side to a student as much as the academic. The Ambassador award represents all of the characteristics the we hope to instil in our students over the 5 or 6 years we spend with them. The core values of a Lasallian school focus on care and respect for others; partnership; and excellence. As a Le Cheile School we value inclusivity; concern for others; and a passion for teaching and learning.

An Ambassador is someone we feel has portrayed all of these values and characteristics and will bring them into the world and represent our school into the future. It is someone who has contributed
positively to our school community and enhanced the spirit of our daily lives. This year, we have great pleasure in awarding the title of Student Ambassador of the Year to Niamh Reid
