St. Mary's High School Midleton Recent Celebrations

On Friday 21st May St. Mary’s High School Midleton celebrated the Official Opening of the New Extension which includes a magnificent new Sacred Space. The school also held their annual Prize giving Ceremony in the afternoon. Ms. Anne Kelleher, C.E.O. CEIST was the guest speaker at the awards ceremony, and officially opened the new extension.

The prize giving began with some wonderful entertainment from the students which included choral singing, solo singing, dancing, drama and instrumental music. In her address to the students Ms. Kelleher spoke of her delight at witnessing so much talent among the students and told those leaving the school to carry with them always the values which are so evident in St. Mary’s.

During the awards ceremony students were honoured for their all round achievements, academic, sporting, musical artistic - but above all for their generosity of spirit through involvement in social justice projects and most particularly for their kindness and consideration to other students and their contribution to the whole school community.

After the cutting of the ribbon at the entrance to the new extension the opening ceremony began with a prayer service. Mr. Donal Cronin, Principal, then paid tribute to all of those responsible for the building of the extension and thanked all most sincerely for the great work achieved.

Ms. Anne Kelleher acknowledged the tremendous debt of gratitude owed to the Presentation Sisters and spoke of how this new extension, and particularly the new Sacred Space, was both a fitting tribute to the past and a place of great promise for the future.
