Clare Ryan visits Pres Tralee

Ceist CEO Clare Ryan visited the school this month. Ms Ryan toured the school with principal Ms Kelly to see all the work that was undertaken during the summer to ensure a safe return to school for our school community. We look forward to welcoming Ms Ryan to Pres Tralee again in the near future.


New Head Girls elected

6th year students Julia Szarota and Aoife Hickey were elected as Head Girls this month.

Both students were thrilled to be chosen by the students and staff of the school. They both attended Presentation Primary school and have been friends for many years.

One of their first duties as head girls will be to form the 20/21 Student Council. In what is sure to be a very different academic year the role of the council will be even more important this year and both girls are determined that the student voice will continue to be heard. Best of luck for the year girls!
