Silver Stella Maris Awards

Another 105 of Notre Dame’s students have been presented with the silver Stella Maris Award. All have reflected on intellectual, moral, civic and performance virtues, as well as demonstrating their commitment to the service of others by volunteering either at college or in the community.

The awards event began with music from the Notre Dame Choir led by Lizzie Leather, a choral director from the Diocese of Leeds. Students Joseph Riley and Radiyat Balogun then read from the Gospel according to St Matthew and the words of St Julie Billart, highlighting the importance of being a shining light for others, and the courage needed to do this.

College principal Justine Barlow presented each student with a silver Stella Maris badge, congratulating them on their efforts. You can see examples of the commendations received by students from college staff below.

“Service: supported me with a technology issue when the interactive board stopped working. Later checked in with me to ensure I was confident in using the workaround.”

“Compassion, service, integrity: Thank you for once again volunteering as a student ambassador at the Experience Notre Dame days. You gave up three days of your own time to greet our applicants, make them feel welcome, and guide them around the college site. Every day, you were the first ambassador to arrive and the last to leave, and you often starting helping with tasks before I had the chance to ask you to!”

"Responsible Citizenship and Courtesy: shown through volunteering at the English speaking club for Ukrainian refugees.”

Congratulations to our students! Further Stella Maris Awards will be presented later in the academic year.
