It provides students with an atmosphere similar to that of an exam and many students find this very useful in their studying. Click here for more information on how to enrol.

Minister for Education Congratulates Dominican College LC Students

Minister Bruton made his first visit of the day to Dominican College to congratulate our Leaving Certificate students on their achievements. Nationwide 58,000 students are accessing their results today and frantically working out their CAO points. We had the great privilege of having a wonderful group of students sitting the Leaving Certificate this summer and while we will miss them, we know that they have worked hard to get where they want to be.
