We congratulate all our 6th years, their parents and teachers and the whole school community on these results. Amongst the many highlights:
- Highest points 605
- 14 students (12%) attained over 500 points
- 39 students (33%) attained over 400 points
- Students who completed TY averaged 105 points more than those who did not do TY
- LCA students (14) all attained Distinction or Merit grades, result higher than 65%
The class of 2015 has produced great results both across the curriculum and as importantly in a mixed-ability school across the ability spectrum. We are very proud of our 133 students who completed their Leaving Certificate in 2015.
We encourage all students to be the best they can be, to extend themselves, to develop their own individual talents and personalities but also to positively bring out the best in those around them. The message is hard work linked to initiative pays off. Team work is a lifeline.
The class of 2015 lived up to, indeed, surpassed our very high expectations of them. We thank them for their leadership, the example they have given to the school and the high standards they have set. They have given so much to our school, to the arts and academics of course, but also across the sporting and pastoral fields.
Offers of college places from the CAO see our students accepted into all 4 NUI Colleges, Trinity College, DCU, UL and many IT’s. Some will opt to start at PLC level and a positive trend, reflecting the upturn in our economy, is that to date 4 students have attained apprenticeships.
Well done class of 2015– we are very proud of you as you should be of yourselves. You have passed on the baton, you have left a wonderful legacy.
We look forward to meeting you all again on 23rd January at your Leaving Certificate Presentation evening, The Ashdown Park Hotel, Gorey. You will receive your LC certificate on the night. This will be a final farewell to our class of 2015 and we will celebrate it with family and friends.
