Following on from Tuesdays earlier ceremony, the Leaving Cert Class of 2016 accompanied by their parents, guardians and teachers attended their Graduation Mass. Celebrated by Fr. Séan Henry, on a beautiful summer's evening the mass focussed on the theme of Hope and looked back on the girls journey from timid first year students to confident, mature women as they take their next steps in life.
Accompanied by beautiful musical arrangements by the Leaving Certs themselves and eulogies from Ms. Maher, Ms. Nugent and Head Girl Hazel Byrne, it was a wonderful send off for the Class of 2016. The Parent's Council presented the girls with a small gift and Fr. Séan kindly handed graduates with religious medals as a keepsake.
Refreshments, served by Mrs. Morris, were enjoyed after the service. Students, parents met with teachers past and present to show their appreciation.
A massive word of thanks goes to Ms. S Byrne, Ms. Monica Farrell, Mr. Marmion and Mr. McKenna for putting the entire service together.
