Our Lady’s Secondary School Castleblayney is very proud of their most recent past pupils who were recipients of Entrance Scholarships to University College Dublin last week. Aimee Moore and Ethan O’Gorman who are both studying Business and Law from the Leaving Cert class of 2019 were honoured at a ceremony in UCD last week.
These prestigious Scholarships are awarded to students based on their excellent Leaving Cert results, having achieved in excess of 560 points. The two students received their award at a ceremony in UCD attended by Principal, Mr. Eddie Kelly.
Speaking at the school during the week, Mr. Kelly offered his congratulations to the two students who had been awarded scholarships. “Aimee and Ethan have not achieved such spectacular success without a lot of hard work and effort. It is fantastic that their application and commitment to their studies has been recognised by their university, they are a credit to themselves and their families and we in Our Lady’s are very proud of their achievements. They are wonderful ambassadors for the school and they epitomise all that is good in Our Lady’s, striving to do their best, to make the most of their talents while remaining true to their core values of honesty, integrity and fair play. All of the staff join me in wishing them well in their future endeavours, as we do to all the class of 2019 in their chosen career paths and courses. Of course none of this could happen without the hard work of a very committed and dedicated staff and on behalf of the students I would like to acknowledge their unfaltering commitment and interest in the wellbeing of their students.”
