Ten young people who sat their Junior Certificate exams in Oberstown were among the 61,000 plus teenagers to receive results nationwide on Wednesday, September 13.
All of the 10 who completed their exams in Oberstown passed at least one exam and were delighted with their achievements. For the 8 young people still present on campus, a small celebration was held in the school, with young people receiving laminated copies of their results, and light refreshments.
Oberstown School principal Martin Treacy said the results were the best ever achieved at the Oberstown school, and he praised the teachers and young people alike for their dedication and hard work.
Chairperson of the Board of Management Professor Ursula Kilkelly added her congratulations to all the young people who undertook Junior Certificate exams in Oberstown this year. Prof Kilkelly extended her thanks to the teachers and all the Campus staff who provide essential support to the young people in their education.
Education is at the heart of the Oberstown model of care. Young people have access to subjects that are part of the national curriculum and have the opportunity to sit the Junior and Leaving Certificate exams. All of the 28 teachers – a combination of primary and secondary school teachers – at Oberstown are professional, qualified and experienced, and encourage each young person to complete state exams and continue vocational training.
