The release of the Junior Certificate results last Wednesday completed the final piece of the jigsaw for the 2013/14 school year.
There was a certain air of nostalgia in the assembly area as students who are now in transition year or fifth year, assembled in their third year class groups of the previous school year. However the nostalgia disappeared as they emerged from their meeting with the Principal with broad smiles of satisfaction and the all-important brown envelope containing the results of their Junior Certificate.
The frequency with which â€˜Aâ€™ and â€˜Bâ€™ grades on higher course subjects appeared on result sheets was a source of enormous satisfaction as students mixed and mingled in the assembly area after they received their results. The high proportion of students who achieved top grades was confirmation of the academic ability of the Junior Cert. class of 2014 and. All students in Cashel Community School studied 11 subjects for the Junior Certificate, and to achieve top grades across a range of general, business, scientific, and practical subjects is certainly confirmation of the diverse talents and range of abilities amongst the class of 2014. A spokesperson for Cashel Community School said that â€œthe broad nature of the subjects studied challenges students and also gives them a very good foundation on which to build a very good Leaving Cert. and hopefully a successful and happy futureâ€.
The class of 2014 is now commencing work on the bigger picture of the Leaving Certificate. 93 of these students have taken the opportunity to participate in the Transition Year programme. The Junior Certificate class of 2014 in Cashel Community School is congratulated on their fabulous achievement and wished every success in the future by each and every member of the school community.â€¨
The assembly area has taken on the look of an industrial paint shop as TY students decked out in white overalls go about their business painting the scenery for the upcoming annual school musical. This year the school will present â€œTake A Chance On Meâ€ a show based on 40 years of music by ABBA. The show, which promises to be a musical treat, especially for all fans of the famous Eurovision winners, will take place between November 5 and 8. Rehearsals are in full swing and the music of ABBA fills the corridors.
