Head Pupils 2016/17
After the first round of Prefect Interviews in June, 16 boys and girls were shortlisted for the Head Pupil interview which occurred at the end of August. The format for this round of interviews were based on a “Dragon’s Den” style presentation. The candidates each made an oral presentation on a school improvement initiative they would introduce.
The final outcome was as follows:
Head Girl – Una Barrett Head Boy – Padraig Quinn
Deputy Head Girl – Niamh Mc Ardle Deputy Head Boy – Conor Woods
