Leavers' Mass & Presentation
30th June 2021
Year 7 pupils finished their seven years in primary school with a beautiful Leavers' Mass in the grounds of our parish church.
For the first two years the children were pupils in St. Mary's PS, Cargan and Glenravel PS; before coming together as Mary Queen of Peace PS. New friendships were formed and the children's talents blossomed across the primary school curriculum.
Following the mass there was a special red carpet Leavers' Presentation Ceremony for the P7 children, where the uniqueness of each child was recognised. The pupils were presented with a special Leavers' Treat Bag, to mark their time and wonderful contribution to the school. This included: a personalised cupcake, an individual Award Certificate presented by the P7 teachers, You are Special Frame presented to each child by their classmates, a personalised Class of 2021 Leavers' Medal (on behalf of the PTA), a Leavers' Prayer and a wee snack for the final part of the Leavers' Ceremony. Finally, the boys and girls then took their position in the leavers' photo frame for a very special farewell from MQP photograph.
The children, in turn, presented to their parents and our community a wonderful Leavers' Film. We hope the children, their families and everyone connected to Glenravel (home and abroad) enjoy this very special film.
Thank-you to everyone who taught, nurtured and cared for the children on the journey through the school. We would also like to acknowledge the local experts who assisted with the film's production; and to Fr Lyons and Fr Conor for their spiritual guidance.
Most of all we would like to thank the children themselves. Today is not a sad day, it is a happy day. You have achieved so much and you are now ready for the next stage of your journey.
Enjoy the film, have a great summer and fly high in September in your new school.
Thank-you boys and girls.
