Students and parents of the Leaving Cert class of 2019 arrived at Cistercian College from 9am early morning to collect their results. There were emotional scenes as students nervously opened their envelopes to read their results. The Principal and Deputy Principal of the College were there to meet the students and their parents and congratulate them on their achievements. The College prides itself on providing a holistic curriculum of academic, co-curricular and sport and this enables the students in its care to develop fully. The vast majority of the class were confident that they will receive an offer of their first choice course, however this will be confirmed when the CAO publishes the offers on Thursday.
College Principal, Gerard Grealish, said that this class participated fully in all aspects of the full College curriculum; only weeks before they sat their exams several members of the class participated in the annual college concert held in the concert hall in the University of Limerick. Furthermore two students were members of the German Debating team that won the All Ireland in May and four students won a silver medal in the All Ireland National School Athletics final in the 4X100m relay on the Saturday before the exams commenced.
