Results Day is always a red letter day for Leaving Cert students around the country and Tuesday 13thAugust was no different for the Leaving Cert class of 2019 in Our Lady’s. Principal, Mr Eddie Kelly congratulated the students, teachers and parents on the excellent results. With the school’s results once again well ahead of the national averages, the majority of the students will progress to their first choice CAO courses at university and third level.
Speaking at the school during the week Principal, Mr Eddie Kelly commented on this year’s excellent Leaving Cert results, “as a school we are absolutely delighted with this year’s Leaving Certificate results as all of our students across different levels and abilities achieved above and beyond what they had expected. Almost 20 % of the year group (one in every 5 students) achieved in excess of 500 points, 54 students achieved in excess of 400 points (an increase of 9 students from last year) and over 67 students achieved over 350 points. A special word of congratulations goes to Ciaran Mc Kearney who achieved the maximum of 625 points with 6 H1’s and 1 H2 in higher level subjects. To have such outstanding results during a year when the school had so many extra-curricular successes at national, provincial and local level speaks volumes for the talents, skills and abilities of our students and the hard work and commitment of their teachers. I would like to thank the teachers for their extraordinary generosity of time and effort in preparing the students for the exams and to the parents for all their support and cooperation over this past six years. We are extremely proud of all our students as they leave not only with a set of excellent Leaving Certificate results but have necessary values & characteristics that will ensure they will be successful as they move into next phase of their lives. We in Our Lady’s are very proud of all these students and we thank them for their fabulous contribution to our school over the previous six years and wish them well in all their future endeavours”.
