Senior students have been recognised for their exceptional academic achievements. Five Transition Year students, Sarah Mc Hugh, Eimear Brady, Emelie Ward, Ava Conroy, and Zoe Shakespeare have been awarded the TY Academic Excellence Award for their outstanding results in the Junior Cycle.
To further support their academic pursuits, the Board of Management of St Joseph’s has awarded the students a Mercy Scholarship to attend the CompuTY Programme at DCU. This week-long programme will take place from April 17th, and the scholarship will enable the students to enhance their skills and knowledge in computer studies. In addition, Niamh McNulty and Sarah Maguire, two 5th Year students, were recognised with Senior Academic Excellence Awards for their exceptional academic performance throughout their first five years of schooling. The Board also awarded them a Mercy Scholarship to attend the Connemara Maths Academy Summer Camp in July. The camp offers a range of workshops, including adventure sports, team sports, and STEAM activities, giving the students an opportunity to further expand their knowledge and skills.
Ms Meagher expressed her pride in their accomplishments: “We are incredibly proud of our students’ success and their dedication to their studies. These awards are a testament to their hard work and commitment, and we are thrilled to see their efforts recognised.” Mrs Linda O’Brien, our Academic Monitor, shared her thoughts on the students’ achievements: “These students have demonstrated a remarkable level of academic excellence and determination in their studies, and we are so proud to see them honoured for their hard work. They remind us that with dedication and passion, we can achieve anything we set our minds to.”
