Wexford People - - NEWS - By BREN­DAN KEANE

THE PRE­SEN­TA­TION School in Wex­ford cel­e­brated its an­nual awards cer­e­mony last week and ac­knowl­edged the high stan­dard of ex­cel­lence dis­played by the pupils over the past year.

The school’s con­cert hall was packed to ca­pac­ity with over 200 dif­fer­ent awards be­ing pre­sented mark­ing stu­dents’ achieve­ments in a broad range of ar­eas in­clud­ing aca­demic, so­cial, sport­ing, civic and spirit.

The cer­e­mony was held on Tues­day, May 8, and among those in at­ten­dance were proud par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers who watched as the stu­dents were pre­sented with their certificates, medals and tro­phies.

The guest speaker on the night was Coun­cil­lor Lisa McDonald and she com­pli­mented all of the re­cip­i­ents on their achieve­ments and she wished them all the best of luck with their fu­ture stud­ies.

A spe­cial video called ‘Em­power Your Voice’, which was pro­duced by the Pos­i­tiv­ity Group, was shown on the night high­light­ing the dif­fer­ent groups at work in the school.

This awards cer­e­mony re­flects the pos­i­tive and car­ing ethos of the school, which strives for ex­cel­lence in a car­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The motto of the school is “Our best, al­ways” and the night af­forded a glimpse of that in ac­tion.

Spe­cial recog­ni­tion was also given on the night to the All-Ire­land win­ning ju­nior camo­gie team and to the se­nior camo­gie team who won the Le­in­ster fi­nal, mak­ing it a great year for sport in the school.
