The Leaving Cert awards followed the annual Transition Year awards night held in the school's general purpose room last Wednesday night.
All students and their parents attended to observe stalls that had been set up by the pupils themselves, displaying the different work done by them in every subject.
After half an hour of everyone perusing the work, those gathered flocked into the GP room for the awards ceremony.
Students took turns to stand before the crowd and speak about their highlights of the year.
A video created by up-and-coming Spielberg, Alex Eydt, showed a montage of the various activities and trips over the year.
The Spirit of the Year, which is given to the student who was an outstanding influence throughout the year was won by Brian Sweetman, a very worthy winner. The night was an all round success.
Next week's issue will include details and pictures of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th year awards which were presented last night (Monday).
