THERE wasn’t a dry eye at Croom Community Centre when over 120 Leaving Certificate students of Colaiste Chiarain were honoured by the school at the annual graduation ceremony.

Dressed in their cap and gown the students were treated to a PowerPoint presentation consisting of photographs from a variety of occasions and excursions during the students’ six years in the school along with speeches from pupils and management.

“It was a wonderful evening and we were delighted with the turnout. The hall was full to capacity,” said school principal Noel Malone.

“We were delighted that they showcased the work that the students have done not alone this year but their contribution to the school over the last six years. There was a wonderful video presentation with shots of the students from the very first day they entered the school right up to recently. It went down really well. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house in a sense and we were very pleased to celebrate the contribution of the students who have made a particular impact,” Mr Malone continued.

Every graduate left the school with a personally engraved medallion along with a year group photo.
