Scoil Mhuire, Kanturk Awards 2015

Scoil Mhuire Awards 2015The achievements of students of Scoil Mhuire Mercy Secondary School Kanturk were recognised at the 2015 Awards Ceremony on Friday October 23rd.

Deputy Principal Denis Keating acted as MC as the afternoon’s proceedings began with a song by Green Day performed by the school choir under the direction of music teacher Mary Farrell.

The special guest for the occasion was Dr. Marie Griffin CEO of CEIST.

Addressing the award recipients, the student body, school staff and guests, Dr. Griffin said it was both an honour and a pleasure to be invited to speak at and present the Scoil Mhuire awards. Before presenting the awards Dr. Griffin congratulated the award winners, parents and staff on their wonderful talents and achievements.

The introductions and citations were read by Ms Caitriona McNamara and Mr. Rickie O’Keeffe and following these presentations School Principal Ms Miriam Downey addressed those present. She congratulated all the winners who have contributed in some remarkable way in their chosen award category. She said ‘This is our way of publicly acknowledging this contribution, of saying that while we are proud of all of our students, you earn a particular accolade. Success does not come easily, but demonstrates what can be achieved by effort, determination and self-belief’. Ms Downey thanked all the musicians, singers and performers under the guidance of Mrs. Farrell for the afternoon’s entertainment, special guest Dr. Marie Griffin, MC Mr. Keating and Mr. O’Keeffe and Ms McNamara for reading the citations.

The afternoon’s proceedings ended with a performance of ‘Tell me it’s not true’ from the musical Blood Brothers sung by the school choir.
