Never before have our school leavers been the recipient of so many scholarships. We are delighted to be able to tell you that…..

Evan Bracken was first awarded a Naughton Scholarship which are a scheme of scholarships to promote the study of engineering, science and technology at third level by students in Ireland.

Evan has also been selected by the State Exams Commission as one of the top three achievers in Mathematics in the 2016 Leaving Certificate. He will receive his gold medal in Cork in the coming month.

Evan’s high points in his Leaving Certificate have also been recognised by his chosen college, UCD. He will be awarded their High Achievement Award this week.

David McCabe received an Entrance Scholarship / Award from Maynooth University for the current academic year. This is awarded to students who have over 525 points in their Leaving Certificate.

Kamil Cierpisz is a recipient of a 2016 All Ireland Scholarship 3rd Level Award sponsored by JP McManus. He will be presented with this award by the former Ireland Rugby Captain Paul O’Connell and the Minister for Education, Mr Richard Bruton on Saturday 19th November in University Limerick.

Also in University Limerick, Frank Flanagan, who received the highest points in St Mary’s CBS in his Leaving Certificate, is being awarded a UL40 Scholarship Award. This award is based on his performance in the Leaving Certificate, as determined by their CAO points. This will also be awarded in the coming weeks.

Darragh Hewitt, who is studying in University College Cork, has been awarded the Mary Ryan Scholarship for the next three years of his studies.

We wish to congratulate all these students for their achievements, hard work and wish them well in their future studies and careers. We also wish to recognise the great support their families gave them throughout their education in order to achieve these amazing results. And not least, to all their teachers throughout their 5-6 years here in St Mary’s CBS, well done for your commitment and hard work in preparing these young men for their future studies and careers.
