CPC Graduation 2015

Last Thursday saw the Class of 2015 graduate from Cross and Passion College, writes Noel Clare. Parents, students and teachers assembled for the Graduation Mass and Ceremony in the Parish Church with Fr Martin Harte celebrating, assisted by Fr Niall Mackey. The students themselves were involved in all aspects of the Mass including the music, which as usual was performed by a very talented and versatile group of sixth years.

Once again it was an emotional occasion as students bade farewell to their school and thanked their parents for their support by giving them a single rose. The students were addressed by their Year Head Denis Dennehy and by School Principal Catherine Moynihan and the address on behalf of the students was given by Aaron McLoughlin Sutherland.

After the Mass there refreshments were served in the Parish Centre by members of the Parents Association. For the students there was a quick change out of school uniform and for one night anyway, thoughts of the impending Leaving Certificate exam were shelved as they travelled to Carlow for their own celebration party. The Leaving Cert starts on June 3rd next.
