Scoil Mhuire, Clane
Some 200 students took the exam at Scoil Mhuire Clane where principal Padraig Nolan said he was delighted with the results.
The number who sat the exam was twenty more than last year and Mr Nolan, a former Kildare GAA senior footballer and manager, expects that this will be the norm given the population growth in the school’s catchment area.
Six Scoil Mhuire students achieved H1 results across the board in all subjects.
“Some of the students sat the actual exam as well taking the accredited grades, which was encouraging. All of the grades are up and this is probably a reflection of the accredited grade system. The papers were adapted because of the amount of time missed during the academic year (as a result of Covid-19) and rightly so,” added Mr Nolan.
