Leaving Certificate students across the country received their results last Friday September 3rd with the students in Our Lady’s Secondary School achieving fantastic results across a wide range of subject areas. In what was a very difficult and challenging year for all students, school Principal, Mr Eddie Kelly congratulated the students, teachers and parents for their resilience, hard work and determination in challenging times.
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 outstanding results. Four students achieved over 600 points, 18% of the year group (one in every 6 students) achieved in excess of 550 points, 38% of students (36 students) achieved in excess of 500 points and over 51 students achieved over 450 points. In Leaving Certificate Applied 4 students achieved a Distinction and 2 students achieved a Merit grade. A special word of congratulations goes to Laura Christie and Tara Quinn who achieved the maximum of 625 points in the Leaving Certificate with 7 H1’s in higher level subjects and to Lauren Mc Entee, Lisa Walsh, Shannon Mc Cusker and Gareth Mc Donald who achieved Distinctions in Leaving Certificate Applied. To have such outstanding results after such a difficult two years year speaks volumes for the talent and commitment of our students and the hard work and dedication of their teachers. I would like to thank the teachers for their extraordinary generosity of time and effort and the parents for all their support and cooperation over this past six years. We are extremely proud of all our students as they leave our school with a set of excellent Leaving Certificate results and the 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 of our students and we thank them for their fabulous contribution to our school over the last six years and wish them well in all their future endeavours”.
