Dec 04 Joint 3rd place with 100% of students going to third level
The Irish Independent published its league tables for the 729 post-primary schools in Ireland. For the third year running, we were placed joint first with 100% getting into 3rd Level. We are extremely proud of our high academic standards at St Vincent's Castleknock College. It is driven by dedicated, hard-working, enthusiastic teachers. It is delivered by diligent students, encouraged by their parents. Let's keep it up. [The photo below shows Kevin, Khan and Oriel giving our outstanding results the thumbs up.]
The Irish Times also published its league tables this week. We are top in our region, Dublin 15 (with, according to them, 101% going to third level!). Interestingly, the Irish Times has a league table for students getting into the higher points courses in Universities. We are up from 19th to 14th in this table with an astonishing 90% of our students getting into high-point courses in Irish Universities. Congratulations to the class of 2014 and the excellent teachers who work so hard and with such enthusiasm to make these results happen.
