Students in Tipperary Town and across the country have been collecting their Leaving Certificate results today – some in person at their school others using the online Student portal.
Sixty nine students in Scoil Ailbe sat the Leaving Certificate exams this year including seven students on the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme. School principal Ruaidhri Devitt says the results are very good with many students now expecting College offers next week while others have plans for Apprenticeships, Further Education or employment. Students are encouraged to avail of advice from the school’s guidance counsellor in the coming days if they are making decisions. Mr Devitt says students are in the lucky position of having a huge range of options for further education or training and a labour market crying out for staff. Each person is an individual and needs to make the best choices for their own strengths and situation. The Principal echoed the comments of other school principals in saying that the day is a milestone and he encouraged students to celebrate the occasion.
St Anne’s School had fifty seven students receiving results today including five on the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme. Principal John Cullinane says students and staff are delighted with the results which he describes as excellent across the board. Mr Cullinane congratulated the students and extended thanks to the school teaching and support team for their contribution as the students move on to the next phase of their life.
There were forty eight students at the Abbey School getting their results today. School Principal John Kiely says the results are the best ever in the school. Mr Kiely says the outcome from the LC exams crowned a wonderful year for the Abbey School which included two Leaving Certificate Students Shane O’Connor and Liam Carew winning the BT Young Scientists Exhibition and considerable success on the sporting field. Mr Kiely, who recently managed the Limerick Senior Hurling team to a fourth consecutive All Ireland title, says the boys supported each other throughout the year and worked hard for their results. School staff and parents are very proud of their results today according to Mr Kiely as he wished the students well in their life beyond the doors of the Abbey School.
