As part of the piloting of my BFG to EU, the participating students were invited to a Graduation Day on 28 May 2018 to celebrate their achievement in completing the programme.
They were the very first group of 239 students from Peig Sayers Gaelscoil (Cork City), Kilmurry National School and De hÍde Gaelscoil (Fermoy) to learn about Ireland and the European Union. This definitely deserved a special day in UCC at which Ryan Tubridy delievered the graduation speech.
All children were in gown and had class pictures taken. They received their completion certificate and enjoyed a tour of UCC, a bit of food as well as a special cinema session in one of the lecture halls. The President of UCC was in attendance. We all had a fantastic day.
