After many preparations and tremendous effort from both children, teachers and parents our graduation for our 2nd class to the senior room and of course our sixth class to their secondary school took place on the nineteenth of June 2023.
The ceremony commenced with a few words from Mrs Carroll , followed by the song “ True Colours” performed by the senior class room with sixth class singing the opening as a class.
Next, Fr. Power granted the sixth-class pupils a blessing for their endeavour to secondary school. After that 6th class read their speeches that brought a tear to many eyes as the children included their favourite memories and thanks to the teachers. Ms Hogan said a small poem for the sixth class and then the 3rd class to 6th class sang “You can count on me” by Bruno Mars.2nd class were presented with a gift each and 6th class a card and gift each. Ms Hogan was gifted a Mulligans voucher from all the sixth-class girls. The hall was beautifully decorated and the food afterwards was much appreciated and enjoyed by all present. Although full of emotion, the day was delightful and flew past quickly. Many thanks to all that were involved and contributed. It will be yet another delightful memory for the 6th class going forward in their education.
