Spirit of Transition Award


Each year, the Past Pupils Union presents the Spirit of Transition to an outstanding Transition (4th) Year student. It is the premier award for the year and takes into account a wide range of involvement and achievement – including community service, academic achievement, use of initiative, extra curricular activities, personal development and maturity.

The award, which is possible by a generous donation from the family of the late Jim Dixon, is a sculpture composed of polished ancient bog yew from the midlands of Ireland. It was designed in 2007 by Celtic Roots, located near Athlone.
