'Follow your passion' after A Level results - Mullan
Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has urged young people receiving A Level results to “follow your passion” when it comes to fulfilling their educational or career path.
Speaking following the release of A Level results on Thursday, the Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson said:
“I want to wish everyone receiving a result every success.
“These days young people face a lot of pressure when choosing a path for the future. The advice I would give those receiving results today is to follow your passion.
“Exam results steadily improve year on year, and credit must be paid to three successive Sinn Féin Education Ministers for their work in developing our education system.
“The fact that this has been achieved in a context of relentless Tory austerity and cuts to school budgets speaks also to the efforts of teachers and public sector staff.
“Our society prospers through the work of our teachers, carers and parents, and today is a day to celebrate their role in educating and supporting young people in what can be a challenging time in their lives.”
