Many congratulations to all of the class of 2014 who are celebrating their Leaving Cert results as they await the college offers. They have good reason to be very happy as this year’s Bower graduates raised the bar yet again, with 24.5% of the girls scoring over 500 points. More than half of the class scored 400 points or more (57%), while four students scored over 600 points. This is way above the national average and students, parents and staff can be proud of this achievement.

While several students are assured of their chosen courses in pharmacy, medicine and veterinary medicine, the vast majority of the class of 2014 can be confident of being offered one of their top preferences next Monday.

We wish everyone well in the next exciting stage of their careers and look forward to seeing you all at the Grad Ball on Tuesday, 26 August.
