Speaking about this unique Graduation, Liz Horgan, Principal of Sunday’s Well Girls’ National School said:We are so grateful to our wonderful Parents’ Association. Their careful consideration of HSE guidelines resulted in a novel way of recognising the graduation of our fantastic 6th Class pupils. Gurranabraher Credit Union have been a great support to our school over the years, and we thank them for sponsoring this initiative. They have made a very positive contribution to the school and all of our pupils, past and present.”
