Congratulations to our class of 2019, who did themselves, their families and our school community very proud today. 113 Form 6 students sat their Leaving Certificate back in June and received a fine set of results today. Despite the results being available online at an earlier time of 10am we were delighted to welcome many students to school this morning to congratulate them and wish them well on the next stage of their journey.
Six students scored 600+ points, 3 girls and 3 boys, with 3 scoring the maximum points of 625; Emma Bowie, Elena Teevan and Ben Buller. We are super proud of Head Girl, Emma Bowie, who excelled in many extra-curricular activities throughout her time here and received 7H1s. Emma has accepted a place in Trinity College studying law.
Congratulations to Ahmad Ashfaque and Emma Bowie receiving scholarships to Trinity College and Luke Harris and Kim Zitzmann to UCD.
