Prizegiving Ceremony 2022
FVC was a buzz today with the excitement of our Prizegiving Ceremony. This is always my favourite day on the school calendar. It is a celebration not just of academic achievement but also of achieving goals, developing talents and making a difference.
We are proud of each and every member of our school community and are delighted by their collective achievements. It is a day for celebrating our individual and shared achievements, reflecting on a successful year and marvelling at how far we have come and the opportunities we have experienced.
The importance of teamwork and hard work was the theme of todays speech from our guest of honour, local entrepreneur Tommy Gallen, proprietor of Gallen Hospitality. His story was truly inspiring showing that dreams do come true through commitment, determination, kindness, respect and humility.
Mr Thompson echoed the importance of these qualities and encouraged students to make them the hallmark of their time in Finn Valley College. He also spoke how our school thrives on teamwork and thanked our dedicated Staff, Parents, Board of Management, Parents Association and members of the wider local community.
