Alex White TD Congratulates Leaving Certificate Students

Alex White, TD for Dublin South, has sent his best wishes and congratulations to the Class of 2013 who will receive their Leaving Certificate results tomorrow.

“It can be a daunting time for students and parents when the Leaving Certificate results are released. I want to congratulate students who worked hard to achieve their grades and I also want to acknowledge their teachers, parents and guardians who supported them.

“It’s important at this time to reassure and encourage people who did not do as well as they may have liked. Don’t give up and be disheartened. There are many paths that lead to success and your Leaving Certificate results don’t define you and your talents.

“I want to alert students to a Leaving Certificate Helpline run by the National Parents’ Council and supported by the Department of Education. With this service, qualified guidance counsellors will give advice and support to both students and their parents. The helpline phone number is 1800 265 165 and it will open at 8am tomorrow, Wednesday August 14th.”

For students wishing to continue their education at Third Level, the first-round of CAO offers will be available on Monday, August 19th from 6am. The CAO process will continue into September with second round offers being made available.
