6th Class Graduation Ceremony 2020

6th Class Graduation Ceremony 2020

Today is a very special and unique day for our 6th class students and indeed our school.

We would normally celebrate our 6th Class Graduation in the hall of Knockskeagh National School!

However, as we know that is not possible. So instead, we will celebrate this occasion virtually and what a fantastic ceremony we have in store!!!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Graduation Ceremony whether it was sending in videos and pictures, or sourcing them!

Thank you to 6th Class teacher Mr. McCarthy for putting a very special ceremony together.

Also, a huge thank you to Greg Mulcahy for his help with the Graduation Ceremony.

This is all about our stars from 6th class!! They have been a magnificent class. We at Knockskeagh are so proud of them for their hard work and dedication throughout their time in the school.

They have always been so mannerly, kind, helpful, and great craic around the school and they will be so missed.

Congratulations to our 6th class on their Graduation!!
