Coláiste Gleann Lí presented its current fifth year cohort with their Junior Certificate Profile of Achievement on Friday.

This is a historic event for the school and the town as they are the first cohort of students in an English-medium school to receive the certificates. The school organised a BBQ in their student garden to mark the occasion.

Principal, Richard Lawlor said; “We are delighted to be able to present the Junior Certificate Profile of Achievement to our fifth year students in recognition of their achievements across a broad range of areas of learning in Junior Cycle. This certificate offers parents/guardians a clear, broad picture of their child’s learning journey over the three year period and it recognises the holistic educational experiences offered in our school”.

The students were very appreciative of the opportunity to celebrate the many cross curricular and extracurricular activities and learning opportunities that they participated in over the 3-year Junior Certificate Cycle at Coláiste Gleann Lí.

Deputy Principal, Liam McGill stated; “It is wonderful to have this opportunity to present our students with an appreciation of their achievements in areas such as music, drama, filmmaking and interculturalism. It is a chance for staff and management to show that all students are valued and appreciated for their talents and skills”.

Coláiste Gleann Lí was among the first schools in the country to commence the implementation of the new Junior Certificate given that their staff are predominantly TUI members.

The TUI had agreed to cooperate with the implementation of the New Junior Certificate prior to their ASTI colleagues who voted to support the programme last year.
