Congratulations to Alex Hanley (Transition Year) who has become a national champion after sensationally winning the gold medal for Physics in the IrEUSO national competition held in DCU on Saturday 11th November.
Alex had been selected to compete in the unique competition based on his outstanding Maths and Science Junior Certificate results.
The college also wishes to congratulate Oisín O’Sullivan (5th Year) who was also selected to take part in this prestigious competition based on his own top marks in his Junior Certificate. Oisín can be very proud of his efforts as he competed with students from all over the country.
As gold medal champion, Alex will now participate in training with the other eleven medal winners in physics, chemistry and biology to decide the team of six who will go on to represent Ireland in the 2018 International Science Olympiad.
The EUSO International Science Olympiad will be held between the 28th of April and the 5th of May in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
We wish Alex every success as he now begins his training for what will hopefully be his Ireland debut in Slovenia next April.
