Creagh College Celebrates Academic Achievement
Academic Awards 2019
Our 3rd Annual Academic Award Ceremony took place last Thursday evening. This event, with its wonderful atmosphere, is one of the highlights of the Creagh calendar as the students’ hard work and academic excellence in the lead up and during the State Examinations are recognised and celebrated by the whole school community.
Over 40 students and their families were invited to receive a special award. Specially commissioned Academic Medals were awarded to students who achieved Higher level top marks in Junior & Leaving Certificate exams (A/Distinction/H1). Mr Paul Glynn, Principal, reminded everyone that this success was a result of a combination of talent, hard work and dedication. He also congratulated the students’ families for their continued support and encouragement, which he said was ‘an integral part of their success’.
Beautiful bespoke Perpetual Trophies were also awarded in each subject, and teachers were proud to present them to the student who excelled most in their studies. Huge thank you to the many local businesses who sponsored the awards, and to the talented students and teachers who designed or created them. These trophies on display will serve as an inspiration to future generations of students, of whom we also expect great achievements.
Lastly, the Perpetual Trophies for the highest results overall in State Examinations were presented to 2 students – Monica Santos who received the highest Leaving Cert results. Monica, who also was recipient of Academic Medals, achieved over 520 points in her Leaving Cert and has gone on to study Science in Dublin. Her proud family were there to accept the award on her behalf. For the highest Junior Cert results, Deputy Principal Mr Declan O’Toole was extremely proud to present to Santhwana Saju. Santhwana also received five Academic Medals and is now thoroughly enjoying a completely different learning experience in Transition Year.
