This year’s Head Boy is Adam Greer, Head Girl is Grace O’Sullivan, Deputy Head Boy is Max Stafford and Deputy Head Girl is Aife Haran. Congratulations to all the new Prefects who were elected by their classmates and their teachers. A Spelling Bee shield was presented to the winner of this new in-house competition. The winner was Tiarnan O’Connor. The Headmaster and Canon Regan also presented Kayaking Ireland Level Two Certificates to three Junior School students, James Gallagher, Conor Ryan and Killian Langton. Well done to the the three boys, who had successfully completed an assessment test last May.
