THERE was great excitement in schools around town on Wednesday morning as students collected their Leaving Cert results.

Over in Presentation Secondary School, Principal Sheila Pontillo handed out the envelopes and wished all the girls well for the future.

“We’ve very pleased with the results,” said Ms Pontillo, who revealed one student achieved eight A grades, another achieved seven As and some others got six A grades.

“Of course you have the high flyers – eight per cent got 550 points and 23% got over 500 points so we’re delighted with that – but we’re equally delighted for the students who reached their potential. It’s been a hard few years of work but today is when it all pays off. Everyone – the students, teachers and parents – has an input into that success. ” she said.

The story was similar in Gaelscoil Chiarraí where students gathered in the hallways, taking shelter from the showers outside, to revel in each other’s success.

“The students seem very pleased,” said Principal Austin O Seachnasaigh. “The Irish results are extraordinarily good, as they usually are here, with a very high percentage of As. From what I can see, of the 60 who sat the Leaving, 18 have achieved over 500 points. We have one student who got 615 points,” said Mr O Seacnasaigh.

Students were passing in and out of CBS The Green all morning and slapping each other on the back for a job well done.

“From the boys that we here this morning, they were all thrilled,” said Anne O’Callaghan, Principal at the school. “All the boys I spoke to got the courses they were looking for with points to spare and I think it’s so important they are happy with that. It wasn’t just the boys in the high end that were pleased, but the students who were not so academic were also delighted and got what they wanted,” she said.
