Mr Hardiman Awarded M.B.E.
Mr Hardiman described this as a'humbling' personal accolade. "I consider this an award that belongs to others also – my patient, supportive, loving family, and wonderful and generous colleagues, past and present, whom it has been my privilege to work with and learn from," he says. "And also the many supportive parents and fantastic children I've been privileged to work with."
One particular person warranting Dennis's gratitude is the late Father Patrick Kelly, who appointed him. They went on to forge a partnership "built on respect, commitment and friendship" which proved hugely beneficial to school and community.
