Date: Wed 4th Jun, 2014 | 16:08

President Higgins said today, “May I extend best wishes to all those students who commence their Leaving and Junior Certificate exams today.

Over 115,000 students and families are involved in another important element of the education cycle. Students, in their differing circumstances, will have put their best efforts into their studies. With the support of family and teachers, they will now undertake their examinations with their best expectations.

While these exams are important, all of us should remember that they are but one part of the overall learning and education cycle, which will continue for the remainder of their lives.
