Academic Prize Giving

Mon 4th Dec 2017

One of the highlights of the school calendar is our Academic Prize Giving, which took place in the Wilson Wright Hall on the evening of December 4th. It is always lovely to welcome back our Form 6 leavers, to receive their prizes, and what a fantastic set of results there were this year. See the separate news feature on our students that received University Entrance Scholarships.

John Rafter, gave his last Charter Day speech as Headmaster, as he is to retire at the end of the school year. He covered a lot of very relevant topics in his speech such as; the Junior Cycle Framework, Social Media - how students really feel,  and our academic results for this year. Please click here to download the speech. It is well worth the read.

We were delighted to have as our guest speaker, Councillor Roderic O'Gorman. Councillor O'Gorman is a past pupil of the school and went on to study at Trinity College and the London School of Economics. He is a Fingal County Councillor since May 2014 and has served as Chairman of the Green Party since May 2011. He is also a University Lecturer. He is pictured here with John Rafter and Andrew Deacon.
