Lucan Community College Leaving Certificate Results 2020
There was a very different sense of anticipation in relation to Leaving Certificate results this year. While our first day of school for our full student cohort continued on without any sounds of excitement in the air, teachers still waited with anticipation for the release to the school of the results. It was certainly not the same without our students gathering and celebrating along with their teachers, tutors and year head and we all missed handing out the brown envelopes and watching as they were opened. We hoped that you managed to make the process a little bit special in your own homes.
Overall the results received very much matched the expectations that teachers had for their students and the evidence that students had provided to their teachers in their ongoing assessments over the last two years. “The class of 2020 managed a very challenging situation and step forward into the world of further training, study or the world of work with an ability to deal with disappointment, change and uncertainty like no other year group. Their support for each other and the gratitude shown to their teachers who worked remotely with them from March to June has been wonderful to experience”, said Principal Diane Birnie.
Parents, guardians, families and friends supported and guided students throughout their second level education and especially during the remote learning period and the changing landscape of how students would be assessed. Lucan Community College appreciates abnd commends this support and involvement. The college community thanks the students for their contribution to the college during their time here and is confident that the future holds wonderful things in store for them all.
Ms Clarke, year head, offered congratulations and best wishes to all of the students and said “You all did your best and we, in Lucan CC are very proud of you all. You are all choosing different paths and we wish you well as you embark on a new journey.” Our career guidance counsellors have made themselves available to advise students about their results and about their CAO offers and appointments can be made by email or phone.
Principal Ms Birnie and Deputy Principals Mr Brett, Mr Purcell and Ms Malone offered particular congratulations to top Leaving Certificate achievers this year including: Alex Hanley (who achieved maximum points – 625) with Lucy Reade, Delfin Malaj and Emmet Bellew all over 600 points. Our other top achievers this year were Sean Egan, Sam Doyle, Aisling Kavanagh, Laura Lakes, Aaron Mc Garth, Olan Song, Jordan Lee and Daniel Power.
Many students achieved personal best results and can be proud of their achievements. We remind students who may not have achieved their desired results to engage in the appeal process through the Calculated Grades Portal and to seek advice from career guidance counsellors and support agencies as there are many paths open to students. We wish our graduates very best of good luck in the future.
