Irish Second-Level Students’ Union
Well done on your results!
Second-Level Students’ Union sends best wishes to class of 2012
The Irish Second-Level Students’ Union would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all examination candidates upon receiving their Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certificate Applied results today.
Speaking today, the ISSU Education Officer, Brendan Power said:
“Today is a new beginning for all Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certificate Applied Candidates, not an ending. It is the start of a new chapter of your life, and we here at ISSU would like to formally congratulate you on your results and wish you all the best for the future. Remember to take stock and evaluate over the next few days.
There are plenty of facilities available to students including school Guidance Counsellors, parents, exam helplines and online resources to help students during this time. Students should enjoy today and tonight, but do so sensibly. There is a lot more to life than your results and your results night.”
The ISSU urges students to use the National Parents’ Council post-primary (NPCpp) exam helpline (1800265165) to seek independent advice from qualified guidance counsellors if you are unsure of your options over the upcoming days. Online advice and support is available from ISSU on issu.ie.
