Students who are taking LCVP, Music Practicals, Irish, French or German Oral Examinations should be in class as normal before and after the exam, to avoid loss of valuable tuition time in their other subject areas.  There is no need for them to come in late or leave early on those dates.  Thank you for your support with this.

Selecting the right subject and at the right level is a critical task when deciding on your Leaving Certificate options.  Selecting the wrong choice may lead to students finding their path to third level is restricted as they do not have the right subject required for entry to their chosen course.
