More than 100 girls in St Louis received their exam results today after months of waiting.
Michelle Dolan, Mary Gilmore & Guidance Counsellor Dara Mee worked from 6am in the morning to process results and have envelopes ready for students at 8am. They were met at the gate by a great crowd of excited young women and their families & friends.
Students from across the county arrived and were thrilled to see results and quickly convert them into CAO points with the help of Ms Mee and the Points Calculator on Careers Portal. The Honours Maths Teacher was delighted to discover that everyone in the class had achieved the bonus points available in that subject. Indeed there were excellent results in STEAM subjects across the school in Technology, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Art & Music.
In line with the trends over the years the St Louis girls realised when they opened their envelopes that they had earned enough points to head to 3rd level – the school’s success in progression to 3rd level was highlighted in the Co Louth League tables last year and again with the awarding of the Trinity Schools of Distinction Award for 2019 for the second year running…members of the Guidance Team and Management will be travelling to Oxford at the end of September to continue to work with the Trinity College team and other agencies to further access to the highest possible educational opportunities for all students.
The recent DES inspection report highlighted the school’s inclusive ethos and this was evident this morning in the great excitement displayed by the Leaving Cert Applied class of 2019 when they realised 7 students in the class had achieved the maximum distinction mark.
Principal Michelle Dolan was delighted for the girls. “Once again our students have done really well and we are so proud of all of them. We are looking forward to welcoming back our other students shortly, and our new first years. The school has once again undergone massive renovations over the summer so it will be a busy few days to get it ready for the influx of students and teachers on August 26th.”
