Leaving Certificate 2020 Calculated Grades – Mon 7th Sept

Best wishes to the Leaving Cert class of 2020 who will receive their Calculated grades on Monday at 9:00 am via the Student Portal. It is extremely unfortunate that we cannot be with you on Monday to celebrate your achievements as a group.

We understand results time can be a difficult time for students and if any of last years Leaving Certs would like to meet with any of our team for support, please ring the office and we will call you back or organise a time for you to call into the school. Ms Scarry (Guidance Counsellor), Ms Clesham (Chaplain), Ms Doyle (Yearhead), Ms Griffiths or myself will be available to call you back or meet in person if necessary. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we cannot allow visitors to the school without having arranged a meeting first.

Last years Leaving Cert students who are attending the school for a scheduled visit will also be required to respect physical distancing requirements and to behave in a responsible way, in line with public health advice and the school’s visitor policy. Gathering large groups of students in one venue is not recommended at this time.
