Students from Scoil Mhuire National School in Rosslare were honoured for their academic and sporting achievements during their final week in school.

During the annual sixth class awards ceremony last week, pupils from this year's graduating class were presented with awards which included Sportsperson of the Year, Student of the Year and Gaeilgeoir of the Year.

According to school secretary Georgina Peare, the event has been taking place for 15 years.

Each winner gets their name added to a perpetual trophy along with a smaller trophy which they keep for themselves. These trophies are funded and presented by family members of the students.

A sports day awards ceremony also took place in the school last week.

In addition to the presentation of student prizes, several volunteer sports coaches were presented with thank you gifts.

These incuded GAA coach Colm Doyle, athletics coach Leo Coy and Golf coach Elizabeth Callaghan.

Noel Ferguson, who has been the school's tag rugby coach for several years, was also presented with a medal to mark his recent retirement.
