Student Support

It is recognised that for the Leaving Certificate class of 2020 the tradition of coming back to school to celebrate the results with teachers and classmates on the day that the results issue will not be the same as in previous years.

Due to CV19 we will not be able to safely support pupils onsite. But we are happy to do so by phone.

Please ring the school office (049-8541180) and provide the following information:

  • Your Full Name;
  • Your contact number;
  • Specifics of what you need support / information;
  • What member of staff you would prefer to speak to;

These planned interactions with students are intended to support wellbeing and to discuss future education and career options, but there should be no discussions about school estimated marks submitted as part of the calculated grades process. Any questions or queries in this regard should be directed to the Calculated Grades helpline/email.
