ST John’s Church was packed to capacity on Friday afternoon as around 240 sixth year students from Mercy Mounthawk enjoyed their graduation day.

An incredible eight classes plus LCA students were present for a wonderful occasion that draws a curtain down on their time at Kerry’s largest secondary school.

With the theme of ‘Stronger Together’, inspiring speeches were made by head girl Kim McTigue and head boy Ethan Fitzgerald, while¬†Principal John O’Roarke also wished all students well in the exams and future endeavours.

It was also an emotional time for parents who, no doubt, can’t believe how quickly the years have gone by since their children took the step from primary to secondary.

Afterwards, the students and their families spilled out onto the churchyard for loads of photos before heading off to enjoy the evening. Scroll down for photos…
