On 21st March our 12th Class students celebrated their graduation from St. Kilian’s during an enjoyable evening of speeches, prize-givings, sharing of memories and musical performances.
As is the tradition at our graduation evening, our Vorschulkinder (Senior Infants) perform a dance and then hand a rose to each 12th class student, a nice exchange between the pupils who are about to start their school lives and those who are finishing theirs.
Well done to all subject prize winners and also to the nine students who were awarded our “Longevity Award” for having spent their whole school life at St. Kilian’s, 14 years from Kindergarten to 12th Class.
A special congratulations goes to Leah Fellenz who won the “Award for Outstanding Contribution to the School” and Alessia Cipparrone for winning the “Academic Award for Student of the Year”.
Our Principal Alice Lynch expressed thanks to the teachers and parents of our graduating students and also to this year’s guest speaker, Audrey Carville, Irish journalist and radio presenter, for her inspiring speech.
A big thank you also goes to Sam Staunton and Tess Pursar, 2018-19 Head Boy and Head Girl, for their contribution to their class and the whole school through their work in the Student Council. They both held a lovely and emotional speech to round up the evening.
We wish all our students the best of luck in their futures and hope that you will stay in touch!
