THE dust has finally settled on the Leaving cert results. Students, their parents and teachers have had a chance to look back and reflect on what they mean.
In the case of the exam results in Portlaoise College, it was a great year for the Leaving cert class of 2020.
It has been a year like no other for students all across the country.
In particular, the leaving certificate students missed out on the traditional experiences of sitting their exams, having a debutante ball and coming in to school to receive their results.
However, Portlaoise College organised for the leaving certificate class of 2020 to visit the school at designated times in order for them to get an opportunity to speak with their teachers and express their excitement and relief after receiving their results. It was happy faces all around as the students achieved the results they deserved.
Among all of the change and hardships of the last few months, one thing at least remains constant – the management and staff at Portlaoise College are immensely proud of their students and wish them every good fortune as they venture towards new horizons.
