Prize Day Celebrations 2016

Posted on : October 28, 2016

On Friday 28th October Sligo Grammar School held its annual Prize Day Celebrations in Calry Church. Prize Day honoured the many students who did well last year across many disciplines. Prizes were awarded for academic achievement and effort in every class and subject area. Special prizes were awarded for achievement in other areas of endeavour such as sport, Art, Public Speaking, Business Enterprise, the Sciences and Languages.  Medals and trophies were awarded to the students who excelled in both the Junior Cert and Leaving Cert exams. The Farra Cup was awarded to Nell Kelly, the student who contributed most to school life in her six years at Sligo Grammar School. The Guest Speaker this year was Mr. Paraic Duffy, Director General of the GAA. Mr. Duffy spoke about the importance of  fostering “spirit” in teams, groups and, of course, schools, if we hope to achieve anything. He also reminded the students that their potential was limitless and to never stop striving to be better at whatever it is they are passionate about. After those inspiring words, everyone was invited to have lunch in the school dining hall.  To see photos from the day, see our Facebook page and our Gallery HERE
