Class of 2014 Graduation

The graduation ceremony for the class of 2014 will take place in the school on Friday 2nd of May. This is a special event in the life of the school as we celebrate the academic lives of our current 6th Year students. It is important to take an evening away from studying to recognise the academic, sporting and cultural achievements of our 6th years, the investment of parents and teachers in reaching those goals and to celebrate the life-long friendships forged in Blackwater Community School. On behalf 6th Year Head John Heneghan, LCA Coordinator Maria O Brien, 6th Yr tutors, management and staff at BCS, we wish you the very best in your exams and happiness in your futures. May each of you enjoy the journey.
