Hazelwood College Awards 2020

All our students are hardworking and dedicated, and I want to acknowledge their commitment to their studies and to sport. We cannot however offer awards to everybody. The people getting awards today have shown something special that we want to acknowledge. Normally all the students would be gathered in front of me in the gym as the announcement of the award winners is called out. This year however is different and we are announcing the winners online. The presentation of the award prizes will be made at a later date.

I want thank all the staff who have worked so hard with all their students and brought them to a point where they can move from Junior Cycle to Senior Cycle or leave second level education and venture to the world of work or to college. A special thanks to all the staff who have taken teams or helped out in any way with improving the quality education that is delivered in Hazelwood College.
