Students celebrate Awards Day at Bridgetown
There were great celebrations at Bridgetown College recently as the annual school awards were presented for achievements over the past year.
Students were honoured for their dedication and commitment in academia, sports, and various extra curricular activities.
The overall student of the year was Lorna Walsh.
Speaking at the event, school principal Fionnuala Greene said it was a special day in the calendar, one which the school community looked forward to. It was, she said, an opportunity to celebrate academic achievement in addition to achievements on the field, the stage and further afield.
She added: 'It is also an occasion for us to acknowledge publicly students' talents, hard work, commitment and helpfulness, and to recognise the many ways in which they display pride in our school.'
She thanked all students who had represented the school over the course of the year and congratulated those whose exemplary behaviour and achievements had been recognised. Finally she acknowledged the hard work of teachers and special needs assistants and thanked them for their support, encouragement, dedication and commitment.
