Junior Cert exams.

Congrats to all the students receiving their results today

Today (Wednesday) is Junior Cert results day for 1,114 students in Kilkenny.

The figure is a small increase (of three students) on the numbers who sat the exam last year, with a new junior cycle programme now in place.

The ever-popular Junior Cert results celebration disco will take place in the Hub at Cillin Hill later on this evening, hosted by the No Name Club. As always, the event will be free of alcohol and drugs. Random breath-testing will be carried out and the event will take place in a supervised environment.

Local TD and Sinn Féin spokesperson for Education Kathleen Funchion has wished those receiving their Junior Cert results today the best of luck for their future.

“I would like to wish all students receiving their results this morning the very best of luck. A lot of hard work went into preparing for these exams over the past few years by both students and teachers alike, and I hope that students feel accomplished and proud," she said.

“While these exams are undoubtedly important, they are not the be all and end all. Education is a broad path and we must each find our own way along the journey. I am sure this year’s Junior Cert students have done themselves and their schools proud and I wish them all the very best for their futures.”
