A total of 904 students will receive their Leaving Certificate results across Laois today and the girls from Scoil Chriost Ri were all smiles.
While the number of students taking the exams is falling nationally, Laois continues to have more students taking state examinations each year – in line with the population boom.
And there were well over 100 girls in Portlaoise this morning to collect their results.
Our photographer Julie Anne Miller went along this morning and captured the best of the action which you can see below.
Laois students who are worried or concerned about their Leaving Cert results can avail of The Examination Helpline 2018 which The Institute of Guidance Counsellors (IGC) have welcomed.
The helpline will open tomorrow to offer advice, information and support to Leaving Certificate students receiving their exam results.
The 1800 265 165 Freephone Helpline opens from 10AM to take calls from students, parents and teachers seeking advice and information on what choices are available to students.
