The one journey that never really ends
The story of the man who went up a mountain and came down a hill comes to mind with the Leaving Cert. Once over the summit and given a bit of perspective, the student feels the scale of their achievement diminish a little.
But they shouldn't. For pupils, parents and teachers, no other exam carries the same weight of baggage, expectation and stress; so to have made it to the peak is worth recognising and celebrating.
Each year comes with its drama and this was no different, with maths coming under the spotlight.
