The graduation ceremony for the Leaving Cert. class of 2017-2018 took place on Thursday the 24th in Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré.
The theme of this year’s ceremony was ‘OHANA’. The opening reflection read by Ciara Hogan and Emma Wright explained the meaning of ‘OHANA’
The 6th years had picked songs for their service that linked in with the theme. They opened their ceremony with the song ‘Brave’. Aoife Maher, Orlaith Cleary and Katie Scully then performed a beautiful version of the song ‘This is Me’. The group then gave a very emotive performance of ‘Fix You’. Neil Maher and Joe Ahern gave a lively performance of ‘These Days’. The service finished with the entire group singing ‘Breakaway’. Mr O Connor presented each graduate with their certificates. Head Boy Neil Maher and Head Girl Margaret Harty addressed both their peers, parents, guardians and teachers with very powerful speeches. The ceremony concluded with each of the 6th year students releasing a white balloon each outside the gym.
Everyone in Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré would like to wish each and every 6th year student the very best of luck in their forthcoming examinations.
