Leaving Cert Results Day 2017

Leaving Cert Results Day 2017

Leaving Cert Results Day photo album

Leaving Cert. results day in Carndonagh Community School began with the admin staff collecting the results from the Post Office at 9am on a damp Wednesday morning. However the smiles and general contentment with the results among the pupils who called to collect their result soon brightened up the day.

With 195 pupils sitting the Leaving Cert and 15 sitting the Leaving Cert. Applied, this was one of our biggest year groups for some time. I am delighted to see so many of our pupils realise their ambitions, getting the points to proceed to the next stage of their careers. It is a tremendous achievement for the huge majority of pupils who enrolled 5/6 years ago to have stayed the course and successfully negotiated their Leaving Cert. which is one of the great rites of passage in Ireland. The attendance of so many of their teachers today in school reflects the relationship our teachers have with their pupils. We are grateful to their parents and their teachers for encouraging and supporting them over the 5/6 years.

As usual we had the full range of achievements - those who needed several honours or several passes to move on to the next stage. Our highest score was 613 points with a dozen pupils achieving 500 points or higher. I was really pleased to talk with one of our pupils who has mapped out his career in the fishing industry, as this is still a big part of the Inishowen heritage. Our best wishes to all our Leaving Certs. Celebrate your achievements, look out for one another and take care of yourselves wherever you go.
