After the Christmas Mass on December 21st 2016, several Academic Award presentations were made.

The principal, Ms. Frances Threadgold, said, “Since our September Mass two Junior Cert students have been nationally recognised for their outstanding performances in subjects. I can’t imagine what it must feel like to hear that you have scored 400/400 in a State Exam – imagine full marks …….. and then to top it all you are a girl doing what might be (wrongly) perceived as a boy’s subject?? Well we are all so proud of you CIARA CARROLL (Colm 4) from Clonegal – For being awarded the highest marks in all of Ireland in Junior Cert. Higher Level Technology. I now call on your technology teacher, Mr. Daithi Flynn, to present you with an award on behalf of the school.

Next we have a young lady who achieved 10 A’s in her Junior Cert but who has since been upgraded to 11 A’s – that’s ALL A’s at Higher Level in her Junior Cert. I now call on NIAMH O’DOWD (Brid IV) from Camolin to come forward for her award for Academic Excellence in Junior Cert 2016.  Niamh joins two other students, Ciara Carroll and Ciara Kinsella, in this outstanding achievement. 

But I’m not finished with Niamh yet!! …. Because a couple of weeks ago we got a call from the SEC to tell us the fantastic news that Niamh had also topped the poll with the highest result in all of Ireland in Junior Cert Higher Level Business Studies. Your teacher, Ms. Maria Kennedy was thrilled for you and I now call on Ms. Kennedy to present you with an award for this outstanding achievement on behalf of FCJ.”  

The principal concluded by saying that, “In fact in Business Studies we have had wider success.   Nine students were selected for their excellent Junior Cert results and were recently presented with Certificates by Waterford Institute of Technology.”
