The Junior Certificate results at St Brendan’s were met with expressions of delight by students and staff at the College on Wednesday morning last. Our traditional strengths in Maths and Sciences were reinforced by the performance of the students, results in German, Art Music, History Technical Graphics & Woodwork in particular were worthy of note. While other subject areas continued to perform strongly. School Guidance Counsellor Karen rice believed the results were a fair reflection of student effort and offer a gateway to Senior Cycle where students can now specialise in their areas of strength. For those students now in Transition |Year these results allow students to explore career options parallel to their identified academic strength

School principal, Sean Coffey, welcomed the results and recognised the hard work of the students and the staff in the context of the changing landscape at Junior Cycle the presence of a State Examination is an excellent reinforcement of work achieved over a 3-year period and an excellent preparation for the rigours of the Leaving Certificate Programme. As is now our tradition 100 students from Transition Year, Leaving Cert Applied and 5th Year accompanied staff and parents on a hike on Mangerton. The promotion of healthy activity remains a focus at the College.
