Class of 2020
Colin, Ross, Seán, Emily, Kayleigh, Caoimhe
You have reached a milestone in your educational journey, but it is not the finish I expected for you all. However, in time to come, you will have a greater story to tell about your final weeks in primary school than anyone gone before you. I am immensely proud of you all, the class of 2020. Each one of you has worked hard to realise your potential and worked towards reaching your goals in a determined way.
It is not all about the academic achievements but rather embracing all the opportunities in sport, music, drama, art, technology, and the nurturing of friendships along the way. You have embraced these opportunities and developed both life skills and resilience across the broad curriculum in our school. Each of you has grown in a way that you should be proud of and you are now ready to transition to a new exciting chapter in your lives full of opportunity.
You have the ability to create and be responsible for your future and I hope you experience joy on this journey. Of course, there will be challenges ahead too which is part of life. I encourage you to make the right choices for you and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. I sincerely thank all your parents for their tremendous support and willingness to support your education over the years.
John F. Kennedy famously said, “Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.”
You are the future, so follow your dreams, be kind, be brave and believe in yourself. Most of all I wish you happiness and good health in life always.
