Evening of Excellence Awards in Coláiste Dún an Rí

Coláiste Dún an Rí held its Evening of Excellence Awards ceremony in the Community Centre, Kingscourt on Wednesday 24th May. The special guest on the evening was Mr Aogán Ó Fearghaíl, Uachtaran Cumann Luthcleas Gael. In the company of Mr John Kearney CE Cavan/Monaghan ETB, Mr Sean McKiernan Chairperson CMETB, Mr. Clifford Kelly, members of the Parents’ Association, Board of Management, parents, family members and other invited guests, the students were recognised for their outstanding contribution to a myriad of extra-curricular activities that they participated in throughout the year.  In his address to the students, M Ó Fearghaíl praised them for all that they had achieved in such a short period of time. Using the analogy of a jigsaw, he highlighted how so many of  pieces had been put in place by the students throughout their first year and praised them for all they had achieved, but reminded them that the jigsaw of  learning would never be fully completed as life is a continuous learning journey. Throughout the course of the evening, in a most unique way, every student was called to the stage to accept an award for his or her contribution to a sporting discipline-GAA, soccer, golf, athletics, badminton etc.-the BT Young Scientist Competition, SCi Fest, drama, music, lunch-time Clubs, or for their positive contribution to life in the school. Other speakers on the night praised both the students and staff for the positivity they have generated in and around the town of Kingscourt and wished all every success going forward, especially as they were moving into their new state of the art school in August of this year.  Principal Mr Fergal Boyle ended the evening by thanking everyone for attending the event and commended all – especially students and staff-who had contributed in any small way to the wonderful success the school had in its first year.
