On Thursday St. Mary’s College hosted their annual prize-giving ceremony, a night when students are rewarded for their excellent achievements in various areas of school life. On this special night the opening address was made by the guest speaker, Newstalk broadcaster and former Marist student Shane Coleman, who spoke to students about his personal journey and life experience.
The highlight of the night was the presentation of the Student of the Year Award. The Fr. McGeough Perpetual Cup was awarded to Peter Lambe Fagan for his outstanding contribution to the academic and social life of the school.
This was also the last prize-giving ceremony attended by Deputy Principal Mr. Gerry Lambe and long-serving Irish teacher Mr PJ Ó Náraigh before they retire at the end of the academic year. They each had a trophy at the ceremony dedicated after them in recognition of their immense contribution and service to the school.
Congratulations to all who received awards on the night – their dedication, enthusiasm and talents are an inspiration to all.
