On Friday, the 26th May, the Sixth Year students had a busy day with a variety of ceremonies to celebrate their six years in the school. The sixth year students gathered with staff in the sports hall in the morning and celebrated their final day together in Collinstown with a subject award ceremony, a breakfast, good humour, and the traditional slide show recollecting their six years in the school. Images of the graduating class as baby-faced first years caused much amusement and embarrassment in some cases.
Later that evening, the Graduation ceremony saw the students in all their finery, with their parents and guardians, bid a fond farewell to their school.
Sean Kennedy was given the responsibility of Master of Ceremonies and Shiane Whelan was tasked with giving the graduation speech and both rose to the occasion. Shiane spoke movingly of her time in Collinstown Park Community College.
Thank you to everyone involved in organising this occasion. Best wishes to our graduates for success in their exams and their lives ahead.
