Trinity award for St Paul’s

ST PAUL’S Secondary School in Greenhills received a School of Distinction Award from Trinity College’s access programme, Trinity Access.

The school received the award last month in recognition of the college-going culture that has been cultivated in the school.

In 2021, 78 students sat the Leaving Cert in the school and 67 of those were accepted into CAO college places, including six who were accepted into Trinity College.

This award scheme aims to support the continued development of ‘college-going’ practices and a student-centred, innovative learning environment across schools nationwide.

St Paul’s Secondary School was noted as being particularly successful in their commitment to hearing staff and student voices and their dedication to delivering a quality educational experience.

Margaret O’Shea, deputy principal of St Paul’s Secondary School, said: “We are delighted to be part of a nationwide movement to promote the importance of post-secondary education.

“Winning the School of Distinction: Innovation Award recognises the ongoing work of our staff and students and our high progression rates to third-level.”

Lisa Keane, Director of Trinity Access said: “We are delighted to recognise the innovative, leadership and community-focused work that these schools have achieved in an extraordinary year.

“We hope to share the learning from these beacons of creativity with all our other school partners. A warm congratulations from all in Trinity Access for your courageous and creative leadership.”
