Royal and Prior School Raphoe Co Donegal


Prize Giving

Prize Giving

Academic achievement is never accidental. It is always the result of consistent and disciplined effort with the leadership, motivation and direction of the teacher supported by parents playing a crucial role. Unlike the elusive "Who wants to be a millionaire?" contest, to gain examination success very few situations or questions are of the 50.50 variety and there is absolutely no opportunely to ask the audience or phone a friend. Essentially there isn’t an easy route or short-cut to examination success. The achievements of our pupils would not have been possible without the ongoing commitment, effort and time given by many people. Thanks to each member of the teaching staff, Royal School House staff, ancillary staff-office staff, caretaking, cleaning and canteen staff. We thank past-pupils, parents and Board members for their assistance. Above all thanks to our pupils for their efforts, good humour and achievements. Your individual and collective contributions are appreciated and are essential for the continued well-being and success of our school.
