05 Sep Graduation Tea 2017
On Thursday 31st August the Headmaster and staff welcomed the Leaving Certificate Class of 2017 back to the school for their Graduation Tea.
The evening is held in recognition of the students’ achievements in the State Examinations and is an opportunity for the Class of 2017 to meet together before they set off for college.
This year’s class group continued on the success of previous years and collectively achieved the highest average points score ever recorded at the school.
National trends were reflected in their college offers as many students opted to pursue courses in the Arts, Business, Biomedical Science and Computing, Nursing, Engineering, Art and Design, to name but a few.
The majority of this year’s DGS graduates will continue their studies in the Republic of Ireland, with University College Dublin and Dublin City University being the most popular destinations. In addition a number of students have chosen to study elsewhere with college destinations in the UK, America and Germany.
Ms Eithne Hamill, their former Year Head was also present on the night to welcome them back and expressed her absolute delight at their results. On behalf of the school community, Mr Jonathan Graham, Headmaster, congratulated all this year’s graduates and wished them every success in their future studies.
