Presentation College Awards Academic Excellence

The Board of Management implements a system of Academic Awards to honour the top achieving students in the Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate examinations. Academic achievement among the 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.


The Junior Cycle recipients were – Michael Duke, Kate Kumpiranon, Amy McDonald, Esther Ogbegile, Lauren O’Reilly, Chloe Ryan, Emma Stevens and Sophie Stevens.


The Leaving Certificate recipients and their current course of studies were - Harry Feeney (Biomedical Science, UG), Lauren Hennessy (Pharmaceutical Science, SETU), Megan Hosey (Pharmacy, UU), Oliwier Jakubiec (Software Development, SETU), Brandon Jaroszczak (Software Development, SETU), Clare Miller (Bachelor of Education, MU), Cillian Moore (Bachelor of Commerce, UCD), Alannah O’Brien (Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Chemistry, MU), Dáire O’Sullivan (Engineering, UG) and Tommaso Stynes (Bachelor of Arts, UG).
