5 Students Achieve 625 Points In Cashel Community School


Cashel Community School responds to the release of the 2023 Leaving Certificate results.

Months of waiting ended as Leaving Cert results were issued to the leaving cert students of Cashel Community School on Friday the 25th of August.

Their achievement is even more exceptional considering the disruption to normal school life over the past two years caused by the pandemic

Their results reflect the commitment and dedication of the students and all of their teachers according to school Principal John Gallagher.

Their Year Head Mr Farrell noted that the Leaving Certificate class of 2023 saw a considerable duration of their second-level education interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said students had also been early adopters to the new junior cycle curriculum and assessment, and “in doing so, they demonstrated flexibility, resilience, and critical thinking during this period of unprecedented change”.

That said, on receipt of their results the students celebrated their achievements with the school community over the course of the day.

There was much to celebrate, with five students namely Grace Moloney, Aoife White, Amy Wood, Aoibhe Quirke and Artis Skietniek achieving the magic 625 points. A special mention to Artis Skietniek who secured 7 H1 in his examinations.

Many of the 180 students who received their results today took the opportunity to visit the school and share their good news with their teachers.

The Principal Mr Gallagher said “Today marks the end of a very long and enjoyable journey with these young adults. We wish them well in their future endeavours. It was marvellous to see the delight and sheer happiness of those young people as they received their results.

This year’s results were truly spectacular with results in all areas being above the national average”.
“I would like to sincerely congratulate every student receiving their results today. Congratulations to one and all of you,” he said. “You have reached this significant milestone in your education journey and that alone is an enormous achievement. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank your families, your teachers and your school communities for the support they have shown you over the course of your Senior Cycle pathway. Mr Gallagher continued to thank the teachers, management and all the school staff who all contributed to these achievements.
Finally, Deputy Principal Mr John Johnston offered his advice for the coming days stating that “going forward he would advise students to consider all their options as they reflect on their Leaving Certificate results “. He acknowledged that while most students are planning on accepting College places, others are considering further training or direct employment.
