The three secondary schools in Nenagh have expressed their delight at the results achieved by students in this year’s Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certifcate Applied exams. The students received their CAO offers this Monday.

“We are delighted with the results of this year’s Leaving Certificate students, both the LCE (Leaving Cert Established) and the LCA (Leaving Cert Applied). The majority of students were successful in obtaining their first or second choice,” said Luke O’Connor, deputy principal, St Mary’s Secondary School, Nenagh. “We congratulate all the students and wish them well in their future studies and career paths.”

Mr O’Connor said the results were the culmination of dedication and hard work by a lot of people and the excellent results reflect the huge levels of commitment from students, parents and teachers

“We wish to pay tribute to their parents for the supporting role in enabling the students to get this far. “We thank all the teachers for their professionalism, care and hard work with students over the past six years,” he said.

Mr O’Connor said St Mary’s hoped that all its graduates continue on the road of life-long learning and develop attitudes, habits and skills that allow them to face the challenges and joys of adult life with hope and confidence.

Among the high points achievers at St Mary’s was one student who obtained six A1s.

Tony Slattery, principal, Nenagh CBS, said their results were “excellent” with one student getting over 600 points. He also said that LCA students had all passed.

Michael McNulty, principal, Nenagh VS, said everybody was “happy” and students were doing OK in the first round CAO offers. A number of students had obtained 575 points.
