Congratulations to all GCSE students
Sinn Féin Education spokesperson Chris Hazzard MLA has congratulated all local students who have received their GCSE examinations results.
Mr. Hazzard said
"I would like to congratulate all those young students getting their results today.
“I believe they are the result of the hard work and dedication of our students. They are also a credit to the professionalism and commitment of teachers and parents"
"However if you did not achieve the grades you wanted, there are many avenues open to you and I would urge you to explore these by talking to your teachers and parents.
“However there are still too many young people who are leaving education without achieving a basic five GCSE passes including math’s and English and we need to address this.
“Sinn Fein is committed to improving academic excellence right across the board and maximising the potential of everyone of our children by bringing equality to the present system.
"I sincerely wish you all every success for the future, whether you decide to go on to study A Levels, take up a new course, go into training or employment.”
