Presentation Secondary School Waterford

Head Girl's Welcome

We would like to start by saying a warm welcome to students, teachers, and all members of staff after a strenuous year going from lockdown to lockdown. We are beyond happy to be back to our new normal, with high hopes for the incoming academic year from all of our students. This past year has not been easy in any of us, especially the class of 2021, with both their fifth and sixth year being interrupted, so on behalf of everyone we would like to say a huge congratulations on not only their outstanding results but also on their continuous dedication throughout the year. Good luck in the next few years to come!

First years, we hope your transition from primary school to secondary school was smooth and that your first few weeks here in Pres was everything you’d hope for. We understand that due to unfortunate circumstances your journey to get here was not as easy as it would have been years ago, however, you made it through! Just know you are not going through this alone and that we are all delighted to have you here as part of the presentation community.

The aim for the year is that students, teachers, staff members and parents continue to thrive throughout the year. We are confident that students will continue to blossom no matter the circumstance. On behalf of the school, we would like to say a huge thanks to all the staff members who work continuously to maintain the high standards our school is held to, whether that being the cleaners, the school food company or maintenance, your efforts do not go unnoticed. We are extremely grateful.

My fellow sixth years, we are so lucky to have spent six years with such wonderful people. It’s time we really put our heads down and get serious. We’re in this together. We have grown in ways together that no one thought was Imaginable. We know that each of you will go on to be the best version of yourselves and to do great things.

Lastly, we would like to say that despite the changes in the past year, we have managed to keep our positive school atmosphere. We have kept sports, extracurricular and socializing all within the appropriate covid-19 procedures. We are going through tough times and it’s important to be there for one another. Our hope is that we continue to support one another and be kind to everyone and ourselves. Good luck to all in the year ahead.
