On  the last day of school, all the teachers and pupils gathered together in the school hall to celebrate and commemorate the end of another successful school year in St. Evin's School. Third Class pupils and Senior Infant pupils presented a ceremony that highlighted all the events and achievements of the school year and acknowledged all the great work and activities that make our school a wonderful centre of learning and social development.
