We welcome the clarification provided by the Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh, last Friday as regards the 2020 Leaving Certificate Exams. While this is not a perfect solution, at least it provides a safe pathway forward and the uncertainty created by the constant media speculation of whether you would have to sit exams or not is now over. Well done on your efforts learning remotely since the school closure in March. This has not been the final few weeks that you or indeed any of us would have imagined for you at the start of the year. Please know that we all are very proud of you. You are a great bunch of young men no different than any other year groups that have progressed through Coláiste Choilm over the years. In fact, overcoming this experience makes you an even stronger, more resilient and adaptable group. We are aware also that you are missing out on enjoying many of the rights of passage and events that our leaving cert students usually enjoy, such as the teachers versus students match on Sports Day, our Leaving Cert Award Ceremony and Graduation Mass. Rest assured that this has not gone unnoticed by us and we will endeavor to give you the goodbye you deserve when the time is right and public health advice allows. For now, take a break and take advantage of this unexpected free time. Enjoy time with family and talk to your friends, especially those from school. It’s good to talk and be there for each other.

A letter with information about the Calculated Grades process will be posted to LC2 students and parents.

Mar a deireann an seanfhocal, “Ní bhíonn in aon rud ach seal”… as the old saying goes, “nothing lasts forever”. This unprecedented time will pass and life will go on.

We wish you all every best wish in the future be it further studies or entering the world of work. The Leaving Certificate class of 2020 is one we will always remember.
