Junior Certificate Results 2010
Congratulations to the pupils of St. Columba's College on attaining an excellent set of Junior Certificate results yesterday. The pupils truly excelled, obtaining grades well above the national average. In science, over 87% of pupils sat the exam at higher level and all achieved an A, B or C grade (16% of which were A's). In mathematics, 77% of pupils sat the exam at higher level and again all achieved an A, B or C grade (a massive 29% obtaining an A grade), which is astonishing considering the worrying trend of declining standards in maths nationally. Results were equally impressive in other subjects including History (38% of pupils achieved an A grade in Higher Level) and English (84% of pupils achieved an A,B or C grade at higher level). The pupils yesterday celebrated their successes with a trip organised and supervised by Mr. Sherwood. The pupils visited the Dublin Wheel, went on a speedboat tour of Dublin bay and rounded it off with a trip to the cinema. The pupils should be extremely proud of their achievements and can look ahead to the senior cycle with renewed optimism.
