Message from School Management- LC 2020

To our sixth year students and their Parents,

The Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh T.D (Friday 8 May 2020) announced the postponement of the 2020 Leaving Certificate. 

Following a decision at Cabinet, all students are to be offered the option of receiving Calculated Grades for the subjects they are studying and the alternative of sitting the 2020 Leaving Certificate examinations at a date in the future when it is considered safe to hold the examinations. 

The decision has been taken following an assessment of public health advice and other information and the implications for holding the exams from the previously rescheduled date of Wednesday 29 July 2020. 

The school management will be in touch with you and your parents early next week when the full details of the arrangements are released to schools.

Please try not to worry any further on this matter over the weekend. We will keep you informed about the steps involved and support you throughout the process.

We invite you read the documents attached regarding the arrangements for the leaving Cert 2020.
