Presentation Secondary School Waterford Awards Night 2015

Awards Night at Presentation Secondary School took place on Tuesday 20th October 2015. Awards were presented by Mayor of Waterford City and County, Councillor John Cummins.

Head Girl, Beth Carton, extended a warm welcome to the Mayor and thanked him for his visit. The Mayor addressed the student body and encouraged them all to work their best to be the best possible version of themselves.

Awards Night provides an opportunity for the school to recognise achievements both inside and outside the classroom.

All recipients, along with their families and teachers, were congratulated by the Mayor and by the School Principal, Adrian Gibbs.

Business and Academic Awards were presented by Peter Farrell from Lisduggan District Credit Union. The Principal acknowledged the generous donation by LDCU to the school as part of its five year secondary schools’ initiative.

Following the presentation of awards, the Principal Adrian Gibbs spoke about the commitment of the teaching and support staff ensures the best possible promotion of a holistic education.

Much of this work is done on a voluntary basis and he paid a particular compliment to the staff of Colaiste na Maighdine, who despite the effects of austerity, still continue to volunteer their time to extra-curricular activities and school planning.

Their absence of cynicism and their contribution to the life of the school is a real tribute to the Presentation ethos.
