Thank you to Ms. Matthews for organising such a beautiful ceremony for us all. Ms. Kavanagh opened the proceedings with an uplifting speech followed by our wonderful choir conducted by Ms. Browne. There were awards in the Social and Justice category, Aggregate Studies and Sports.
Year Heads spoke about the achievements of each year group and we all enjoyed clapping and celebrating together. Our surprise key speaker was Maeve Dorman (Paypal) and she gave us some great advice about how to support yourself, other women and your own career. Thank you Maeve.
“On International Women’s Day I am so grateful for the women who continue to inspire, support and lift me up every day. I am reminded that as women, we need to continue to help build each other up.” – Maeve Dorman
