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.

Graduation Speech by Fionnuala Devins

Go n-éirí go geal le gach duine a tá ag déanamh an Teastas Soiséaraigh agus na hÁrdteiste. Bígí ullamh do na scrúdaithe. Codlaigí go sámh agus léigí gach ceist go curamach. / Best wishes to everyone that are taking the Junior and Leaving certificate exams. Be prepared for the exams. Sleep well and read all the questions carefully.

The state exams are almost upon us and as I look back at the hectic last couple of weeks, I remember with fondness thae lighter moments in school. Fionnuala Devins' graduation speech was definitely a 'hit' with everyone. She has kindly allowed us to use it. See full text.
