Sinn Féin wishes Leaving Cert students best of luck ahead of results
Sinn Féin Seanad Spokesperson on Education Paul Gavan has wished the 55,000 plus students who are set to receive their leaving their Leaving Certificate results tomorrow the best of luck with their futures.
The Limerick Senator said;
“I would like to wish all the students who are set to receive their leaving cert results tomorrow the very best of luck. A lot of hard work goes into the preparation for these exams by students and teachers alike, and I hope that students feel accomplished and proud of their efforts.
"I would like to say that while these are undoubtedly very important exams, they are not the be all and end all.
“I wish the best of luck to all those seeking college places but I also remind them that there are other options available if they are not fortunate enough to get the required points for their chosen subject.
“Apprenticeships not only give young people more tertiary education options, but also help to equip Ireland with the skilled workers that are badly needed for growing and emerging industries.
“Apprenticeships offer a unique avenue to earn, learn, gain valuable work experience, and work towards an internationally recognised qualification and an exciting, rewarding career.
“The apprenticeship system in Ireland is underutilised and offers an opportunity to both reduce the number of people who remain on the live register and also tackle a growing skills shortage across a number of industries.
“I have no doubt that this year’s Leaving Cert students have done themselves and their schools proud and I wish them all the very best for their futures.”
