Have you seen our new medals and certificate range? At www.graduations.ie we now have a range of super graduation medals, sports day medals and graduation certificates for your end of year celebrations.

In addition, it makes a wonderful keepsake for families that they will have for years to come!

Have You Seen Our Graduation Certificates?

Our Graduation Certificates are the perfect award for children finishing up in preschool or primary school. These can be presented to children on graduation day or last day of school. The certificates are available in six designs and are available in either English or Irish. They are printed on high quality 160gsm paper and can be purchased in packs of 20 (with a choice of 2 designs). Once received all you need to do is add the children’s names, date and service name. These are a super addition to your end of year party to present to children on the day. They also make a great keepsake!

Whatever you are planning as part of your end of school activities ensure that you put some time aside to recognise the effort each child has made over the last year. Transition is a big part of a young child’s life and it is important to celebrate all milestones. Praising and rewarding from a young age encourages children to have a positive attitude towards education and learning. Children will remember the positive experiences related to learning and look for more of that as they move forward. Most importantly celebrate the children, say goodbye, good luck and have fun!

Whether you have an end of the year celebration or a formal graduation, it is fun to have time set aside for the children before they move on. Transition of any kind is a huge part of a child’s life. Therefore it is very important to mark each of these occasions. Celebrating the end of a school year also celebrates new beginnings as the children move to primary or secondary school.

It is important to recognise and celebrate all the work and personal growth for each individual child. Acknowledging the children’s hard work encourages a love of learning throughout their younger years and into adulthood. Honouring children with a medal on graduation day gives them a sense of accomplishment and pride. The medals are ideal for presenting to children on your special graduation day or end of year celebration. They will become a treasured keepsake for all families.

Children will feel truly special when you present them with these pieces and will be delighted to take them home. They will be proud showing them to parents, grandparents and friends who may not be able to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions. So if you are beginning to organise your celebration, order your medals now so that you will have them for your special day! If you require graduation banner posters, certificates or graduation gowns you can also purchase on our website.
