Victoria College Old Girls’ Association Annual Dinner

On a glorious sunny evening one hundred and twenty four 'Old Girls' gathered in the beautiful pastoral surroundings of Malone Golf Club for their Annual Dinner.

A warm welcome with a refreshing drink, a wonderful meal and a few short speeches made it a memorable evening. For many there was a special reason as they celebrated anniversaries for 25,30,40 and 50 years since leaving Victoria. For each of these groups there were organisers who mustered their contemporaries and it is the hope of the Committee that this will happen for the dinner on 8th May 2020. Once dinner was finished the room resounded to the happy chatter of old and new friends before reluctant farewells were made and promises to meet again next year.

Social media notice for parents

If you have followed the news story regarding the tragic death of Molly Russell (14) you will note that her father places heavy criticism on social media content which sensationalises self-harm and suicide. We cannot deny that our children face many pressures today and are at times, searching desperately for ways to cope. Here at VCB we do not shy away from mental health issues and take an active role in teaching our pupils resilience and healthy coping strategies. If you are concerned that your child is self – harming, please look at the following guide entitled Coping with Self Harm - a guide for parents and carers.

In VCB we want you to be confident in who you are. We delight in the diversity of our community and celebrate your unique talents, skills and ambitions.

Beauty is being real and accepting you are special, with incredible gifts and potential. Never try to change who you are to fit in with what the media says is beautiful.

As we discussed in assembly, character counts and our core values help us to be the best version of ourselves. Beauty is much more than airbrushed photos!
