Junior Certificate Results 2017
A proud day for our students who received their Junior Certificate Results
The College congratulates all their Junior Cycle Students today. Having embarked on the new English Junior Cycle curriculum teachers saw the majority of students achieving Distinctions and Higher Merits in this new syllabus. This is a landmark day for students in Killarney Community College as English is the first subject awarded new grade descriptors in Junior Certificate results.
The Key skills and core competencies that these students have developed will stand well to them as they enter Senior Cycle. The Junior Certificate is an important milestone in the students’ academic journey and marks the transition into greater independence and focus in subject choices in the coming school years. Teachers are very proud of their students and are encouraging all students to celebrate in a safe manner and to be sensible.
Currently studying Transition Year Karen O’Donoghue achieved 8 Higher Level A’s in her subjects including Gaeilge, Maths, History, Geography, French, Art, Business Studies, Science and CSPE and a Higher Merit in her new English Junior Cycle.
