May 27th 2010
An important change in our traditional graduation happened in 2009. That year we decided to have an in-house graduation to mark the end of our Leaving Certs time with us. It has proved highly successful. We invited past pupils to give the address – 2009 Brian Hayes, 2010 Eamon Gilmore.
Mr Gilmore is now Tanaiste and Mr Hayes is a minister in the new coalition government. It is an important moment for our seniors. It marks closure on their time with us and ensures a smooth passage to the state examinations.
