Best Wishes and Goodbyes

Posted on : May 26, 2021

As the school year draws to a close, Sligo Grammar School took the opportunity to say goodbye to some staff members, good luck to others and congratulations to more. In January, during Lockdown,  Selina Stinson, one of our English teachers, left the school for a job nearer home, so today her colleagues got the opportunity to present her with a “Good Luck” bouquet of flowers. Best wishes bouquets were also sent  to Mrs Eunice Hall, HE teacher, and Alma Johnston, one of our administration staff, both of whom are recovering from medical procedures. We wish them both all the best and a speedy recovery. Congratulations (and bouquets!) were extended to Irish teacher, Emer Breslin, on the birth of her daughter Étáin and also to Woodwork and Construction teacher, Padraig Geraghty, on the birth of Emily.  

Finally the school said goodbye to maths teacher Alan Brandon. Mr Brandon has been with SGS for 5 years. As well as teaching mathematics, he was heavily involved in training the U 14 and Junior rugby teams. He goes to USA where he will study for a Masters in Accounting. We wish him all the best in his future. You will be missed, Alan, by colleagues and students alike. Bon Voyage!
