The College has now been informed by the State Examinations Commission of three high achiever performances in Junior Certificate Higher Mathematics in this Summer’s examinations. Conor O’Donoghue has been joined by classmates Kiain Fleming and Ciaran Sheehan in being invited to participate in an international Computing Contest in November this year.

The recognition of the achievements of these three students is an affirmation to all involved in their education. In particular the Maths Department has worked tirelessly in the promotion of Numeracy throughout the College.

Principal Sean Coffey congratulated the three students for the work required to achieve at this level. With all three students participant in Transition Year they will have rich opportunities to explore course and career choices relevant to their abilities and strengths.
