Finn Valley College held its annual Awards Ceremony last Thursday, 24th May with special guests and special moments for all the students and staff. This ceremony is one of the highlights of our school year where staff take the opportunity to acknowledge the efforts and achievements of the students in the same academic year.
Guest of Honour on the night was Dr Martin Gormley, Co. Donegal ETB Director of Schools. Martin gave a very inspirational speech where he advised students to stay grounded and study hard as no matter what path you choose in life education is the gateway to all career opportunities.
Guests were treated to some beautiful music by our school choir led by Mr Godliman and Miss Mc Cafferty, while Ms Ashlean McGeehan was MC on the night.
A wonderful night was had by all, with teachers saying they are extremely proud of the many talents and successes of their students.
