SGS Graduation Ball 2017

Posted on : August 11, 2017

On Thursday 10th August the class of 2017 gathered for their Graduation Ball in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Sligo. They were joined by some of their teachers and the office staff who were so much part of their lives over the past 6 years. It was a wonderful evening filled with nostalgia and a lot of laughs. The students looked fantastic and so grown up - young adults!. Many of their parents, families and friends came to the hotel to usher them in, not believing that their babies were now ready to branch out on their own. The hotel did a marvellous job in catering for the Debs and the school would like to thank them for looking after our students so well. A huge thanks goes also to DJ Scruffy Duffy who did a fantastic job all night long and to photographer Brenda McCallion who stayed taking photos until all the students had gone. Students can order photos through her website and/or Facebook page. There are some (less professional!) photos HERE as well as on the official Sligo Grammar School Facebook page.
