Lydia Scoops Stranmillis/ GTCNI Prize

The winner of the 2018-19 Stranmillis University College/GTCNI Education Studies Prize was Miss Lydia Nabi, from Glenlola Collegiate Grammar School, Bangor.

The set essay title asked Year 13 students: ‘What have your years as a pupil taught you about effective teaching and learning?’ Lydia’s essay particularly impressed the judging panel as it demonstrated deep reflection and understanding of teaching and learning from the pupil’s perspective.
