Lucan Community College is extremely happy with the standard of results that our 123 leaving certificate students achieved this year. Well done to all of the students who worked hard and tried their best. Teachers congratulated students on their achievements and wished them well in their future endeavours.
The college thanks the students for the wonderful attitude they brought to their last few weeks in the college and hopes that the future holds wonderful things in store for them all. We also thank the parents and guardians who supported the students throughout their second level education and especially during the examination period. Mr Byrne, year head, commented “I am so proud of each and every one of them. They worked hard and put in their best effort and I know that they all have a bright future ahead of them.” The tutor team were all on hand to offer their congratulations to the students.
Principal Ms Birnie and Deputy Principal Mr Purcell offered particular congratulations to top achievers Jane Doran and Leon Breen and to Eoin Duffy, Alexandra Robinson, Sean Murtagh, James Carron, Darren Gavin, Andrew O’Reilly, Seamus Keher and Jack Carey and the many other students who achieved over 500 points. Ms Birnie said “while it is always wonderful to see our students achieving some of the best results in the country, we also note the many individuals who achieved personal best results or who overcame great adversity and can be rightly proud of themselves.” The college is delighted that almost 15% of the students achieved over 500 points and that the college went against the national trend in that no students failed Higher Level Mathematics.
She added “To the few who are disappointed with your results, don’t forget that there are other doors open to you that can lead you to your desired destination and that the support of our guidance staff is on offer to you.” Lucan Community College wishes the class of 2015 every success in the future.
