Please see below also a link to the Institute of Guidance Counsellors National Parent and Student Leaving Certificate Freephone Helpline:


Parents and students are asked to note that the school will not have access to the portal until 10am. Therefore, we invite students, who wish to receive their certificate from the school, to present at the office from 11am. Our Career Guidance teachers will be available to support students (if required) from 11am to 12.30pm. Parents and students are further asked to note that students’ work carried out in completion of the practical exams cannot be returned until the appeals process is complete. The Department of Education has not given a definite time line on the completion of the appeals process but we will update parents and students by text and through the website once we have further details. 

We wish all our students the very best with their results.
