Our Lady's College Greenhills Past Students Receive Scholar Awards in UCD

On Wednesday 16th November a hush fell over the gathering in UCD’s O’Reilly Hall as the dignitaries entered the hall.

The academics took the stage and welcomed the new entrance scholars to the university. 

All the students gathered were being recognised for their high academic achievement in the Leaving Certificate in June 2016.

The parents and school principals watched and applauded the students as they received their scholarship certificates.

Our Lady’s College had three student scholars this year. They are Aine Kerrisk, Kate Shevlin and Megan Smith.

All three girls achieved wonderful grades in their Leaving Certificate exams and are now starting their college careers in UCD.

We are very proud of their achievements and wish them every success in their future studies and careers.
