Time to cel­e­brate!

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By MYLES BUCHANAN

Fia Ni Ri­ain, Shauna Ga­han and Katie O’Brien get­ting their Leav­ing Cert re­sults at Scoil Chonglais yesterday.

THE long wait came to an end as hun­dreds of stu­dents across west Wicklow re­ceived their Leav­ing Cert re­sults on Tues­day.

Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate stu­dents in Bless­ing­ton breathed a sigh of re­lief as the mo­ment of truth ar­rived af­ter weeks of play­ing an anx­ious wait­ing game.

The ma­jor­ity of stu­dents gathered from early morn­ing at Bless­ing­ton Com­mu­nity Col­lege to find out how they had per­formed, while oth­ers opted to wait to ac­cess their re­sults on­line.

School prin­ci­pal Kieran Burke praised the stu­dents for the ef­fort they put into their ex­ams.

‘It’s been an ex­cit­ing morn­ing here at the school. Most of the stu­dents are very happy with their re­sults. Stu­dents have achieved some very high marks and they are all pretty elated af­ter col­lect­ing their re­sults. We have had quite a few stu­dents ar­riv­ing early to col­lect their re­sults, while oth­ers waited to get them on­line. We got some very good re­sults in the STEM sub­jects, as well as English and maths. Over­all, this is one of the best years we have had re­sults wise. The stu­dents re­ally put the work in and they have reaped the div­i­dends. There are al­ways go­ing to be some wor­ries about sub­jects like maths, but the re­sults turned out to be ex­cel­lent. We had one stu­dent who did very well af­ter tak­ing four dif­fer­ent lan­guages - English, Ja­panese, Span­ish and French.’

The Na­tional Par­ents Coun­cil Post Pri­mary’s free phone (1800 265 165) and on­line ser­vice will pro­vide Leav­ing Cert stu­dents and their par­ents/guardians with pro­fes­sional and con­fi­den­tial one-to-one sup­port, ad­vice and guid­ance, all manned by ex­pe­ri­enced guid­ance coun­sel­lors deal­ing with top­ics such as the points sys­tem, rechecks, re­peats, CAO pro­ce­dures and fur­ther train­ing op­tions.
