Congratulations to Ciaran McKearney who recently was the recipient of an Entrance Scholarship to Trinity College Dublin. These scholarships are awarded to the highest performing student from a school who is attending Trinity College provide they achieve over 500 points. Ciaran achieved 625 points in the Leaving Certificate and is studying Economics, Business and Social Studies.
This latest scholarship success brings the total number of Entrance scholarships for the academic year 2018-2019 to three, an excellent number in one year and one which Our Lady’s is justifiably proud of.
First to the podium were Aimee Moore and Ethan O’Gorman who are both studying Business and Law from the Leaving Cert class of 2019 who were honoured at a ceremony last month in UCD. Ciaran’s great achievement rounded off a memorable month in Our Lady’s. Speaking at the school during the week, Principal, Mr Eddie Kelly offered his congratulations to all the students who had been awarded scholarships. “These young people have not achieved such fantastic success without a lot of hard work and effort and indeed have reaped the rewards of their efforts, 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 well being of their students.” Congratulations to all concerned.
