There was delight and contentment in Knockbeg today as the Leaving Cert students collected their results.
In total, 66 students sat their Leaving Cert this year. Out of this, 11 achieved over 500 points.
Staff, family and friends were all present to mark the achievements of the class of 2019.
Over 1,000 Leaving Cert students in Laois received their Leaving Cert and Leaving Cert Applied results today.
Under a new fast-tracked process students will receive their offers by the end of the week.
The new system will also see students who appeal their grades receive their results three weeks earlier than before.
Students who applied through the CAO will receive their first offers earlier than usual, at 2pm on Thursday.
Students who wish to appeal their results are being urged to apply to view their scripts online between 9am on Wednesday and 5pm on Friday.
Thank you to teacher Brian Stapleton for sending these photos our way:
