Time to celebrate!
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.’
