On Wednesday (September 13th) the Syntax boys received their Junior Cert Results three months after completing the exams and following a few days of nervous anticipation. They had no need to worry as the results proved to be very good and compared favourably with those of their predecessors. The Headmaster, Mr Lumb, congratulated them on their performance and also thanked the teachers involved, not least those in Learning Support, as well as their prefects, all of whom deserve great credit for this excellent outcome.
The boys, now in Transition Year, were in Rostrevor, Co. Down on their Outdoor Education Trip when the results arrived, and by all accounts also acquitted themselves well while they were there. We wish them continued success during the year ahead after which they will face the challenge of the Leaving Certificate, where they will no doubt do themselves, their parents and the school proud once more on an even bigger stage.
