Junior Cert Results 2016
11 As for Megan and Vita

Congratulations to all our Transition Year students on their wonderful Junior Certificate results. The majority of students exceeded expectations and reaped the rewards of all their hard work over the last three years.
Special mention to two students, Megan and Vita, who received 11 As each – what a fantastic achievement.
Congratulations also to the many other students who achieved multiple As across all subject areas. The top five students achieved no less than 50 As!
A sincere thank you to all their teachers who have prepared them so well for this exam and who continue to encourage them to reach their full potential as they proceed into Senior Cycle. We are very proud of the Junior Cert Class of 2016 and wish them continued success in their future academic pursuits.

Visit from St. Brendan's College, Buenos Aires, Argentina

St. Brendan’s College, Buenos Aires, Argentina
50th Anniversary Hockey Tour September 2016.

On Friday September 9th Villiers School hosted a visiting girl’s hockey team from St. Brendan’s College, Buenos Aires, Argentina. They were visiting Limerick as part of their school’s 50th anniversary tour and also to honour the founder of their school, Mr.  John Joseph Scanlan, a native of Limerick city.

Villiers Senior Girls’ Hockey Team played an international challenge match against St. Brendan’s on Saturday September 10th at 1pm in what was a very  exciting game. Afterwards both teams enjoyed refreshments on the lawn of Derravoher House and coaches and players had a chance to swop cross-cultural hockey notes!

We are delighted to develop links with an Argentinian school with similarities to our own school. Sincere thank you to all the parents who hosted the girls in their homes over the weekend.

Laura's 7 A1s in the Leaving Cert

Villiers is celebrating double success with two students with a clean slate of As in Leaving Cert 2016. Laura Cooke has an impressive 7 A1s to her credit, while Isabel Schulte-Austum has a superb 4 A1s and 3 A2s.

Both girls are highly successful in all aspects of their lives and have exciting plans for the future.

Laura is studying Medicine in NUIG, where she joins her brother, also a past pupil of Villiers, and already studying Medicine in the university. Laura was Head Girl in Villiers and combined a busy study schedule with an equally busy sporting schedule, playing on School hockey teams, and managing a very successful cycling career.

Isabel has also moved beyond the Leaving Certificate having taken her place in the highly prestigious Sciences Po University Paris, whose alumni include 15 of the most recent French Prime Ministers and Presidents, including Francois Hollande, Jacques Chirac and Francois Mitterand. Isabel is a young lady we will certainly see on the international stage in the very near future.

Headmistress Ms Storey was delighted with the results and paid tribute to all of the students and their teachers. “Attainment is personal,” she said, “and we are pleased to see such a well-rounded group of young people looking forward to their university and college offers with such confidence. We know they will take their next steps with self-assurance and poise although we will miss them.”
