On Friday, 17th May, we held our annual awards ceremony for our students in O'Carolan College. This is the one day we pause the teaching and learning that occurs in our school, to acknowledge the tremendous achievements of the growing young men and women, across the whole spectrum of education in the school. The awards recognize that this pursuit of excellence is not confined to academic achievement but encompasses the whole range of activities that makes for a rounded and balanced education.
We had many guest speakers on the day, including local politicans, local members of the clergy, members of the college group and previous students, who helped make our day special in celebrating our student's achievements. Students were awards for their achievements in individual subjects, full and excellent attendence, individual specialist awards and our major awards, such as Academic Student and Student of the Year.
We are delighted to take this day to reflect on the good work done by our student body, and pay them the respect and admiration they deserve for all their effort over the previous year. We encourage all our students to strive to reach their full potential, and continue the tradition of success we see, year after year, in O'Carolan College.
