We cannot let this opportunity pass without acknowledging the wonderful Leaving Cert results. When you think back to the 12th of March and the scale of the challenge at the time you wonder how we managed it! These results were achieved during a nationwide lockdown with very basic ICT infrastructure. Working as a team, students and teachers kept on track and continued to prepare intensely for the tests ahead. You rose to the challenge, you logged on, did online assessments, responded to countless emails and completed numerous assignments. You were magnificent and an inspiration to us all. But of course , you didn’t do it on your own….
We should take a moment and acknowledge the dedication and professionalism of your teachers who worked tirelessly alongside you to ensure the best possible outcome. We look back gratefully on the loving and patient support from your parents which was so important during those weeks. The Home and School working together ensured that the Student got the results they deserved. It’s important that we take a moment ourselves to recognise our own achievement and celebrate these results. In the weeks and months ahead we will be asked again to rise up to new challenges and overcome fresh obstacles. At those times we will be able to look back at what we achieved with the class of 2020…and know that when we work together we are fit to take on anything!
