There was a palpable sense of relief in the school hall as the 6th class pupils of 2020 gathered for the first time since that infamous date of the 12th March! It was an achievement in its own right to be in a position to celebrate this graduation and everyone present was grateful for the opportunity to mark end of primary school for the 21 girls in the class.
Class teacher, Margaret Healy presented the girls with a little graduation cap that contained some important symbols – a Smartie to remind them that they are smart, bubbles to remind them to have fun, chewing gum to remind them to stick together, a star to remind them of their own star qualities and a smiley face to remind them to smile. The girls also received a jigsaw of a class photo – jigsaws are hugely popular in the class.
The Parents Council also presented the girls with a Class of 2020 hoodie which can be seen in the photos. We were delighted to be joined by Sr. Evelyn and Sr. Monica from the Presentation Convent. We remembered our late friend Sr. Mary Paul on the night also.
And so after an historic, challenging and productive year, our 21 girls move on to pastures new and we wish them every success. As Mr. Healy said on the night – we hope they cherish the great memories they shared in the Presentation Primary and know that the door of their primary school is always open!
