Stu­dents hon­oured at St David’s grad­u­a­tion

Bray People - - About Greystones -

GRAD­U­AT­ING stu­dents at St. Davids were hon­oured last week for the great re­sults they achieved in this year’s Leav­ing Cert.

Many of the 2008 class re­ceived plaques to ac­knowl­edge the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion made by them in their Leav­ing Cert year which re­sulted in some fan­tas­tic re­sults be­ing.

The high­est ac­co­lade of the evening for Best Over­all Re­sults went to Ali­son Cooke.

In hon­our of her fan­tas­tic achieve­ment Ali­son was pre­sented with the Paul El­lis Memo­rial Tro­phy.

The memo­rial is in hon­our of Paul El­lis a stu­dent who left St. David’s school 19 years ago and was killed trag­i­cally in a car ac­ci­dent just three years af­ter fin­ish­ing his Leav­ing Cert.

‘Paul was such a won­der­ful stu­dent in ev­ery sense of the word, both aca­dem­i­cally and so­cia­bly so we wanted to make a very spe­cial ded­i­ca­tion to his mem­ory,’ said Deputy Prin­ci­pal Mrs. Kearns.

Ali­son was pre­sented with a sil­ver cup with her name en­graved be­side pre­vi­ous win­ners by Deputy Prin­ci­pal Mrs. Kearns and Prin­ci­pal Mrs. O’Do­herty.

She was given the cup to keep for a few days and she was also given a sil­ver tray with her name and achieve­ment en­graved on it as a keep safe. Some ten stu­dents were hon­oured for achiev­ing an A grade in a higher level sub­ject.

They were Stu­art Con­nolly, Ali­son Cooke, Bren­dan Daly, Martha Gberev­bie, An­drew Ja­cob, Agne Ju­cikaite, Daniel O’Con­nor, James O’Sul­li­van, Lorna Thomas and Lorcan Tre­anor. Stu­dents who re­ceived the high­est re­sult in their class were also hon­oured. In class 6.24 Ali­son Cooke was pre­sented with a plaque for hav­ing the high­est re­sult in her class.

In class 6.3 Lorcan Tre­anor re­ceived a plaque and in class 6.1 Cathy Quigley also re­ceived a plaque for get­ting the high­est re­sults in their classes.
