The school hosted a very well attended ecumenical service on Tuesday evening for parents and students who are undertaking the Leaving Cert. Conducted by Father McGettigan and Reverend Wilson, the service was a send off for students who will be shortly leaving the school. There were songs, prayers and speeches, all performed by sixth year students, who had a very enjoyable night together as a school community. This was an emotional evening for the students, who are now ending a journey that has taken six years. We would like to wish them all the very best in their exams and their future careers.
