UCD Entrance Awards
At a ceremony on Friday last, in the O'Reilly Hall in UCD, Lauren O'Connell (Medicine), Christopher Fenelon (Medicine) and Claudia Felstead (Veterinary) were presented with their 'high achievers' entrance awards. These are awarded to students who achieve 540 or over in their Leaving Certificate. As the vice-president of the university pointed out 'this represents the top 4% of the country'. Lauren, Christopher and Claudia achieved excellent results in the sciences, with each achieving at least one A1 in a science subject at SCC. It is with great pride that we see them continue to study the sciences at UCD.Our congratulations to them and all those other Columbans who have just started their university career. We wish them all the best in their studies.
