Annual Awards Ceremony 2011

Having spent the previous Monday meeting and greeting the President of the United States, Barack Obama, Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin was back among his own in the Riverbank House Hotel when he was guest of honour at the annual Wexford C.B.S. Awards Presentation Night.
The function room was jam-packed with the students being honoured and their parents. They heard Minister Howlin urge the young students to look to the future with great hope and determination. He said he was “delighted to be here to recognise the incredible work, achievements and endeavours of the past school year. I still remember my time in Wexford CBS with great fondness. I can recall the mixed emotions of looking to the future in terms of career and choices.
“Ireland has been under a cloud for the last two years. The recent visits of Queen Elizabeth II and Barack Obama have lifted the national morale. We have shown what we are capable of. This is a great nation with talented, enterprising, committed people. There is no difficulty we can’t overcome.
“President Obama wrote a book some years ago when he was starting out in politics. It was called The Audacity of Hope. The word ‘audacity’ comes from the Latin where it means ‘to dare’.
“We have to act with boldness, courage and determination for a better future. It is easy to be sucked in to feelings of hopelessness and negativity. It surrounds us on the radio, in conversations and in the newspapers.
“There is much to be done. Together we are going to do it. It won’t be a spectator sport; there’ll be no room for onlookers. You might ask ‘What can I do?’ But it’s what you can do for your class, your school, your town and your country. Students are the future. Face that future with confidence and pride. I wish each of you well in all that you do and face in the years ahead,” he concluded to a warm round of applause.
Earlier Master of Ceremonies and Deputy Principal of the CBS, Mr. John Hegarty welcomed Minster Howlin, the parents of the students, the students, the Board of Management and the staff.
School principal Mr. Michael McMahon commented on the excellence of the students and praised for their academic as well as sporting achievements during the school year.
Mr. McMahon also thanked teachers Seamus Doyle and Sean Ahearne, Deputy Prinicpal John Hegarty and school secretary Bernadette Stafford for their work in organising the function.

Major of Wexford and CBS teacher Joe Ryan was also on hand to help at the prizegiving ceremony. Mayor Ryan and Mr. McMahon presented Minister Howlin with an inscribed silver cross pen to mark the occasion.

Finally the Transition Year students made a presentation of a bouquet of flowers and a signed picture of the group to the Transition Year Co-ordinator Ciara Spellman for her Trojan efforts with the class throughout the year which included, among many varied activities, a week-long trip to China.
