Emily Feeney Award


The Emily Feeney Generosity of Spirit Award is a very special day in the Salerno calendar. This award was set up in memory of Emily Feeney, a fourth year student who died in 2007. Emily was an exceptional girl who was known for her positive outlook on life, her gentle nature and her compassion and kindness to all she came in contact with.

Following her death, The Emily Feeney Generosity of Spirit Award was established to honour Emily’s memory and to acknowledge kindness and strength of character in our students. This idea to reward kindness came from the prefect group of that year, 2007-2008. They decided that Leaving Cert students would vote for the girl in their year that best deserved acknowledgement for consideration of others, kind-heartedness and thoughtfulness.
