Graduation 2018

Congratulations to our wonderful 6th class students who are coming to the end of their primary school adventure! We had a special evening on Monday, June 18th to celebrate their graduation. Each student read out some of their memories of St. Fiach’s and then came the embarrassing photo slideshow! They also released memory balloons into the sky together.

Special thanks to our ever obliging parents for supply the refreshments and making the event so special for their children.
