Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS - By MYLES BUCHANAN

WITH Leav­ing Cert re­sults and CAO of­fers all tak­ing place last week, ca­reer choice was very-much the topic du jour in Wick­low house­holds.

Last Tues­day, over 1,600 young peo­ple from the Gar­den County re­ceived their Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate Re­sults.

Lor­raine Mynes, Prin­ci­pal of Do­mini­can Col­lege Wick­low, was full of praise for the ef­forts of the Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate stu­dents at­tend­ing the school.

She said: ‘The re­sults were su­perb for all the stu­dents. They were a very hard work­ing group of stu­dents and all that ef­fort has paid off.

‘I am de­lighted for their suc­cess. I also have to thank the par­ents and staff for all their hard work as well.

‘The re­sults went on­line at 10 a.m. but we re­leased the re­sults at 9 a.m. and all the stu­dents ar­rived at the school early to col­lect them. They were all de­lighted with the re­sults.

‘We had timeta­bles for mind­ful­ness while the stu­dents were study­ing for the ex­ams and lots of them told me they fond it very sup­port­ive and en­joyed it very much. It’s some­thing we are still de­vel­op­ing across the school.’

Oliver Stack, Prin­ci­pal of Coláiste Chraobh Ab­hann in Kil­coole also passed on his re­gards to stu­dents on their won­der­ful re­sults.

‘Coláiste Chraobh Ab­hann is de­lighted with the ex­cel­lent re­sults and stu­dents have re­ceived top grades in sub­jects across the board,’ said Mr Stack.

‘This is a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of our ded­i­cated teach­ing staff. It is great to see that those stu­dents who put so much ef­fort into their work, took the ad­vice of their teach­ers and ap­plied it are now re­warded with ex­cel­lent re­sults.

‘We now wish those stu­dents the very best with their CAO of­fers and the start a very ex­cit­ing time in their lives.
