Businessman and Larne Football Club owner Kenny Bruce was the guest speaker at Larne High School’s annual prize night.
Mr Bruce, who made his fortune after founding online property market company Purplebricks with his brother Michael five years ago, delivered a motivational talk to the young people.
He has invested thousands in Larne FC, giving something back to the club he supported as a boy.
Mr Bruce spoke about why he is so keen to impress the importance of education on our young people in the hope that the pupils of Larne High School can realise their dreams in the way he did.
As well as celebrating the achievements of pupils, guests were entertained by some of the exceptionally talented young performers at the school. The diverse array of acts on the evening included the school choir, individual singers, Irish dancers and a juggler.
In his address, principal Dr Stephen Reid thanked the staff of Larne High School for their commitment and dedication in supporting pupil learning.
