Leaving Cert 2020 Changes
Updated: Apr 14
In light of the recent announcements regarding the state exams, students, teachers and parents still find themselves in the dark a little. There is a lot to be thrashed out and finalised by the Department of Education and we must wait for their conclusions before we put an appropriate plan in place. Yet in the midst of this confusion I think we are all relieved. These exams allow us see the fruits of our hard work and a postponement is so much better than a cancellation. The sitting of the Leaving Cert will mark a turn towards normality and I'd go as far as saying that Minister McHugh's announcement was a huge positive and a reminder that our return to the real world will come, even if we have to sit tight for another while. Attached below is a letter to our Leaving Cert students on behalf all our staff.
