On Friday 15th November, we held our annual Post-Primary Prize Day in school.
It was a wonderful event attended by pupils, staff, parents/carers, grandparents, siblings, Governors, Trustees, friends and past pupils, who were all there to celebrate the achievements of our Post-Primary pupils for the academic year 2018-19.
We were especially pleased to welcome back the Leavers from 2019, all of whom have gone on to further education.
The Guest of Honour was Ms Rosaleen Dempsey, the Children, Young People and Families Lead for RNIB NI.
She talked about her journey through school and university, and she inspired the young people with her wise words about overcoming challenge. As she said, ‘You can do whatever you want but you might have to do it in a different way.’
Every pupil received a Character Award celebrating the wonderful traits they have which will serve them well as they go through life, such as resilience, determination and good humour.
Also presented were the examination certificates from the public examinations, as well as the class prizes and a number of special awards.
At the end of the ceremony we were treated to a signed musical medley by some of our senior pupils.
We are very proud of each and every one of our pupils and we were delighted to have this opportunity to publicly celebrate their achievements.
