This morning students had the option to collect their results on the Leaving Cert portal at 10am.
But most of the Leaving Certificate class of 2022 at Portlaoise College decided to come into the school and celebrate with their peers and teachers.
The elation was clearly evident at Portlaoise College this morning, despite students opening their results online as opposed to in school.
Principal Noel Daly said: “On behalf of all the staff at Portlaoise College, I would like to congratulate all our students receiving their Leaving Certificate results today.
“Well done to the Leaving Cert Class of 2022 as many of our students received exceptional results.
“80 students received their results today and we had a record % of students achieve 500+ points.
“Today’s results represent the culmination of two years of hard work, dedication and resilience from our students and the wider school community.
“Their achievements should be celebrated, and the support of their families recognised.
“Today is a happy and very affirming conclusion to their second-level schooling at Portlaoise College and a launch pad to further and higher education or other career opportunities.
“Our students will be embarking on various third level college courses primary teaching, engineering, business, science and law.
“All in Portlaoise College are delighted for the class of ‘22 and wish them continued success in the next phase of their lives.”
