Scholarship for Douglas student

Wednesday, 12th December, 2018 5:01pm

The New Year is looking bright for one Cork Leaving Cert student who received a special award from UCC last week.

Cian Deasy of Douglas Community School (DCS) was presented with a prestigious scholarship for UCC’s Quercus Talented Students' Programme which supports students with outstanding promise.

The programme promotes excellence in areas such as academia, sport, creative and performing arts, active citizenship, and innovation and entrepreneurship.

The good news comes in the same week which saw DCS rank within the top ten schools in Cork for students progressing to third level according to the Irish Times. With 97 per cent of its 2018 Leaving Cert students going on to third level, DCS is both the highest ranked school in the Douglas area and the overall highest ranked community school in Cork.
