In an academic year that started off so great with our Leaving Cert’s results and achievements, it was fantastic to see this continue last week with our Junior Certificate students – our graduates of tomorrow. On Wednesday the 12th, Coláiste Mhuire was filled with the sounds of overjoyed students and their teachers. It was great to see our students and our colleagues reaping the rewards for their hard work and dedication. Congratulations to all and thank you for continuing to push the bar for those who follow in your steps.

On top of this we would like to extend our congratulations further to our students who have just received their Fetac ICT Awards. These awards, which they received on awards night, mark the successful completion of eight assessments conducted throughout the year. These types of courses, run by Ms. D. Ryan and Mr. J. Brennan, in conjunction with more typical, mainstream subjects, offer the opportunity for our students to expand their skills portfolio for their roles in the Ireland of tomorrow. This considered and positive diversity is further socially and educationally reinforced through our International Students Program that has been successfully running in Coláiste Mhuire for the past 8 years. In the spirit of these celebrations we would like to welcome and thank these international students and wish them well for their coming year.
