Junior Cert Results Day 2016

Junior Cert A-Grades 2016

Junior Cert Results Day photo album

It was a particularly happy and successful day in CCS on Wednesday, 14th September. Congratulations to all of our pupils who received their Junior Cert results. Pictured is a group of pupils who amassed fifty Higher Level A-grades between them (one of whom achieved a clean sweep of 11 A-grades). There's no mystery in the achievement. The recipe for success remains being at school every day, bringing commitment to studies, and maintaining an all-round balance between study and extra-curricular activities.

Judging by the exchanges between pupils and staff yesterday, it's obvious that pupils acknowledge the great efforts made by their teachers and parents, who always encourage pupils to do their best.
