Goodbye Class of 2024!

On the 24th May Notre Dame celebrated the upper sixth class of 2024, giving them a goodbye and wishing them well for the future.

Students arrived in their impressive fancy dress, with costumes ranging from Where's Wally to the cast of Toy Story, plenty of sportsmen and women, and a couple giant aliens. Students admired each others outfits whilst signing their yearbooks to remember their time within the Notre Dame community.
