Leaving Cert Results Day 2020 (Calculated Grades) photo album
We shall remember this results day for a long time. Firstly, it was odd welcoming the 2020 class back and trying to see who was behind the mask. Secondly, the nervous apprehension around the Calculated Grades had disappeared and the eyes were smiling. It was a real pleasure to have the 2020 class back, to manage the opportunity for them to meet safely and to get a chance to say a proper farewell to their school and thank them for their contribution. It was an even greater pleasure to hear of their success and their plans for the future. We had expected very good results from this Year Group and the acid test is always 'did they get enough points to take them on to the next stage of their careers?' And what a range of careers: from farming to architecture, from sport to computer design, reflecting the talents and interests of this generation.
There was clear evidence of high achievement across the board with many pupils exceeding 500 points, several exceeding 600 points and two achieving the maximum 625 points. We are very proud of this year group and have high expectations for the contribution they will make to their community and their country.
