Colaiste Eamann Ris held their annual 6th year Graduation Mass on monday last(23/5/16) in West Court Church, Callan. Fr.Dalton said mass on the night in what was a very special and memorable event for our 6th years. The ceremony was enhanced by magnificent singing and guitar playing from sixth years Jack Bradley and James Carroll who put in a lot of practice behind the scenes preparing for the night.
At the end of the ceremony Principal Br.Brennan addressed the 6th years and spoke to them about reaching their full potential in life and making the most of everyday as they move to the next chapter of their lives. Jim Power and Dylan Lanigan spoke on behalf of the year group thanking all the staff for the hard work and help they provided throughout the six years. Vice-Principal Eamonn Jackman echoed Br.Brennan’s sentiments and congratulated all the class of 2016 on reaching this milestone in their lives and wished them well with their upcoming exams.
The school then recognized some of the performances of the students in their individual subjects and other areas. These students can take great pride in being selected as the best student by their class teacher. This is a recognition of 2 years concerted effort in the classroom and also at home.
