Top Junior Cert Results from Students in CEIST Schools

Students from CEIST schools received some outstanding results for the Junior Certificate 2010.

The Irish Independent featured a number of students from our schools on their Junior Cert feature.

Niamh Buttimer (16) of Mount Mercy, Model Farm Road, Cork, said she was "thrilled to bits" with her 12 As.

"I was really surprised. I had hoped I was going to do well enough but I hadn't dreamed I would do this well," she said.

Niamh had a quiet family celebration at her home in Ballincollig with her parents JJ and Nora, and her sister Grace.

Holy Rosary College, Mountbellew also made the headlines in the Irish Independent article as follows;

"Maria Regan's School Principal couldn't wait to share the news about his star student's 12 As in the Junior Cert, so he brought forward the release of the results from the afternoon.

Maria, a student at Holy Rosary College, Mountbellew, Co Galway, "couldn't believe it" when she opened the envelope handed to her yesterday morning by Principal John Fahey.

I didn't expect to do so well, although I always did my homework" said Maria (15), of Caltra, outside Mountbellew, whose first call was to her delighted mum, Kay.

Maria is also an accomplished musician, playing the piano, viola and accordion and recently took third prize for accordion at the All-Ireland Fleadh."

Presentation Secondary School Tralee's Aisling Moriarty was in such a state of disbelief about her 12 As that she had to repeat herself five times when she rang her mother Joan to tell her the news.

Rosemary O'Sullivan, her Principal, had smiled when she handed her the fateful envelope, but Aisling had not read anything into that.

The 15-year-old admits that she did "put in the work" but also said great credit was due to her teachers and parents.

Aisling celebrated with friends in a local restaurant, followed by a visit to the cinema. 

The CEIST office would like to congratulate everybody concerned on the exceptional results received and acknowledge the work of the students themselves, the teachers and parents, and the Principals of all our schools.
