The Morgan Perpetual Trophy was presented to St. Peter’s National School by Mr. Jim Morgan when he retired as Principal in 1987.
Mr. Morgan began his teaching career on 22nd October 1947 in Sheelagh N.S. He was, in 1948, invited to teach in Dromiskin by the formidable Canon Johnson and taught in St. Peter’s until his retirement in 1987. He was made Principal in 1958, succeeding his father Mr. Jim Morgan Senior.
The trophy is awarded to the 6th Class pupil who shows most care, compassion, respect and courtesy to fellow pupils and teachers. Each year the pupils of 6th class await, with great anticipation, the announcement of the winner. The winner is decided by the teachers in consultation with the students.
