Awards 2018

On Thursday, May 24th, St, Brigid's held our annual awards day. This is one of the highlights of the school calendar and rewards students who have gone the extra mile in contributing to our school community over the past year. Awards were presented for excellence in sport, leadership, business, home economics, art and design, English, together with general awards for contribution to school spirit and leadership. 

Parents were invited to join us for the occasion, which was held in the school gym. The audience were entertained by wonderful music and singing from the senior choir and music students, including a spine-tingling solo performance by Ora Mordant, Leaving Cert.


Guest of honour was Moira Murrell, past pupil, and C.E.O. of Kerry County Council, who addressed the students with her memories of the time she spent in St. Brigid's, interspersed with the perfect mixture of humour and good advice. Ms. Murrell reminded students of the benefits and privileges of living in Kerry, and encouraged our Leaving Cert students to consider returning to Kerry when they have travelled the world to avail of some of the wonderful employment opportunities available in the county. She is pictured below presenting the CEIST award to Siobhán Burns:

A special award was made to Emma Quirke, Leaving Cert, in recognition of her contribution to Special Olympics Ireland at the Castleross Swimming Club:

At the end of the ceremony, we were addressed by Róisín Moore, principal, who congratulated each and every student on their contribution to the school in the past year, and who made special mention of those who work quietly behind the scenes each and every day to ensure the smooth running of St. Brigid's, with special mention of the office staff, canteen staff and Kevin Farrell, our caretaker.


The ceremony was overseen and presented by Ms.Gilligan, who deserves special mention for her hard work and dedication over the past number of weeks in organising the ceremony. Mr Horan was on hand for photographic duty, and as usual, Mr Hughes created a fantastic video featuring the Leaving Certs of 2018 to mark the occasion. 


A wonderful day was had by all and many congratulations to all those who received awards.
