Paul Maskey MP has congratulated Syrian refugees at Corpus Christi College in West Belfast for achieving outstanding grades in their GCSE results this week.  The MP commended the ten students and their teachers for excellent results in GCSE Arabic.

Paul Maskey said:

"These students should be congratulated on achieving outstanding results.  

"These students have fled the conflict in Syria to settle in West Belfast, and as citizens here have clearly excelled academically.  

"This is the result of focus and hard work following a difficult period in their lives, and as such these grades are a testament to their strength and commitment.  

"I want to pay tribute to the the kids and the wider community in West Belfast, but primarily we must thank teachers who perform a vital service for our society."
