Comeragh College's students and staff looked back on a year of achievement at the community school's annual awards. 

The awards ceremony was hosted by 5th year students Eve Torpey and Lee Keane, who spoke about the school's many successes. 

These included the girls junior and senior basketball teams winning the regional finals for a second year in a row, the success of soccer and boys basketball teams and athletics participants as well as students who participated in local rugby, boxing and GAA. 

Transition year students led the way for many school activities during the school year.  Positivity week brightened up students' days and racism awareness week taught students about the cultural diversity in their school and about equality amongst them all 

Over the past year, the school was recognised and awarded with the Amber Flag for the promotion of positive mental health, World Wise Global Schools Passport, BT Young Scientist awards and Young Social Innovators Mending Me, Minding You. 

It was also one of 12 schools chosen for the empathy programme. The Model United Nations was also introduced with students participating and receiving awards as delegates. 

Awards were presented at the ceremony to students from each year for cultural, academic, sporting and  personal achievement as well as contribution to their school.
