UPDATE 22/05/20


Leaving Cert: The Minister for Education and Skills has announced that Leaving Certificate 2020 is postponed and students are being offered a system of Calculated Grades, with State certification, along with the option of sitting exams at a later date. Both teaching unions have agreed to cooperate. All students will be automatically registered for the Calculated Grades system, but will be offered the opportunity to opt out of this process should they prefer to sit the exams. Students will be able to change their levels via an online portal in the coming days.  Teachers will not engage with students, parents or guardians in discussions regarding estimated marks. For full details, please go here:

Junior Cert: The Junior Cert will be replaced by assessments agreed on by schools. Subject teachers and Year Heads will be in touch with students to explain the method of assessment and reporting which Coláiste Cholmcille will apply. All Junior Cycle students will receive a School Report in June outlining achievements in the Junior Cycle. 

First, Second, TY and Fifth Years: end of year assessments will be managed online. Students will receive a report as usual at the end of year.


Coláiste Cholmcille will remain closed until September at the earliest, to support efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19, in line with the advice of the National Public Health Emergency Team.
