Leaving Cert Graduation 2021

Our Leaving Cert class of 2021 have had a very different senior cycle experience to previous years, and that has unfortunately extended to their graduation.
But we wanted to mark the end of their time here with us in Ballinamore CS in a meaningful way. So yesterday afternoon, Mr Kane presented a comprehensive overview of their time here with us to the group. It was packed with interviews, wishes from teachers, old video clips and photos. Great memories. Afterwards, students watched the traditional photo montage, and then had an open-air, socially-distanced graduation ceremony, where they received their graduation certificates.
Best wishes to our LC class of 2021 as they prepare for their exams in June, and move on to bigger and better things thereafter. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
