The keynote speaker was Head of Academy, Peter J McMurray who gave out the awards certificates to the students from first grade to the sixth grade.

The presentations were complemented by a number of poetry readings and several songs by the Junior School choir, including an impressive version of the Jackson Five classic, ‘I’ll be there.’

Concluding his remarks, Mr McMurray commented, ‘Parenthood is a challenge with each day filled with love and anxiety, and especially in light of the recent loss of one of our young students, we as parents hug our children all the harder and seek to protect them from the complexities of the world. But together, school and parents can seek to give the children the tools to move into that complex world, and succeed’.
