The Principal of Carndonagh Community School has lauded “all the pupils who have now come of age and are moving on from secondary school.”
Paul Fiorentini also acknowledged “the work of their teachers over the past two years” as pupils received their Leaving Cert. results.
“Congratulations to all our pupils who received their Leaving Cert. results today,” Mr Fiorentini said.
“It is very satisfying to see pupils achieve and be able to progress on the next stage of their journey into adulthood. Whereas the press always seem to narrow the focus on the pupil(s) who do exceptionally well, and indeed the number of CCS pupils who achieved very high points in the 400+ and 500+ range is very significant this year, we take pride in the achievements of all our pupils.
“With all the attention nationally on failures in Honours Maths, it is a tremendous achievement that we had no pupil fail Honours Maths and indeed had a number of A grades in Honours Maths.
“On behalf of everyone at the school I extend my best wishes to all the pupils who have now come of age and are moving on from secondary school. I wish to thank them for their contribution to the school.
“I hope they carry good memories of their years at CCS. I have high hopes that they will build on their Leaving Cert. achievements and that we can be proud of them representing their school, their family and their community wherever they go,” he said.
