The top-achieving students in the Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate examination processes of June 2020 were recognised and rewarded recently through the fourteenth annual Presentation College Academic Awards.
Academic achievement among students is a top priority in Presentation College and they perform consistently at a very high level in terms of results in the Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate examinations each summer. This is due in no small manner to the hard-work ethos of the students and their teachers coupled with the support and encouragement of their parents.
Normally the Awards Ceremony would have consisted of a sit-down meal for all recipients and their parents in the Seven Oaks Hotel, along with the Principal, Deputy Principals, Year Heads, Deans of Discipline and Board of Management members followed by the presentation of awards. However, this year due to public health restrictions, no such event was possible and the Principal, Mr Murray, privately presented the awards to the Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate high-achievers. He wished the senior students every success in their future studies and encouraged the junior students to return for further awards based on a successful Leaving Certificate Examination.
The Junior Cycle recipients were– Isabelle Fortune, Lucy Gibson, Emilia Hamulewicz, Lauren Hennessy, Megan Hosey, Clare Miller, Cillian Moore, Aisling Mulcahy Ralph, Elizabeth Mulcahy Ralph and Tommaso Stynes.
