Clonaslee College successfully secures top position in County Laois again

Clonaslee College, for the second time, is the top Third Level feeder school in County Laois, ahead of the eight other second level schools in the county. 91% of the Leaving Certificate class of 2018 are attending third level colleges, according to the Irish Independent “Feeder Schools” report, 4th December 2018. The 2017 Leaving Certificate class were equally impressive with a 91% ranking. Large numbers of our students are currently attending the universities and colleges around the country with Pharmacy, Engineering, Biomedical Science and Teaching being the popular choices of our ‘500 points plus’ students in recent years.

In recognition for high points achieved in their Leaving Certificate exams, a number of our students have received Entrance Scholarships from Trinity College and UCD. Pharmacy student, Cecelia Flynn was recently awarded an Entrance Scholarship from Trinity College, while Maths student, Bronagh Conroy received a similar scholarship in 2017. Science student, Emma Wren also received an Entrance Scholarship from UCD in 2017.

Our students were honoured at a recent LOETB Awards’ Ceremony, where top Leaving Certificate students, Cecelia Flynn and Rosemary White picked up top awards. Aibhilin McEvoy and Emer Feighery were equally honoured for their top results in the Junior Certificate.

Student Voice

Clonaslee College values the voice of the students. Members of the student council recently attended training provided by the LOETB in Tullamore. They are busy organising a range of events for Christmas. They are planning a fun quiz for the last day before the students break for a well earned rest at Christmas. Also they are planning a wellbeing event where all students will receive a candy cane with a positive note about them the morning of the holidays by the members of the student council. The staff is committed to maintaining a caring atmosphere and a culture where students wellbeing is positively supported. A head boy and head girl was elected by the 6th year student body. David Mc Cane and Roisin O’ Donovan were successfully elected. They will now be responsible for many duties including meeting and greeting external guests, liaising with senior management and speaking at public events.
