Well done to our star 5th Year student Cathal Hosty on winning a Gold medal at the recent IrEUSO competition which was held for the Junior Certificate Science and Mathematics ‘A grade’ students on the 24th of October at DCU. The group was split into three subjects – Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Cathal entered the Biology exam and achieved the best marks for Biology out of the hundred pupils which sat the Biology exam. This is a fantastic achievement and a credit to his hard work and determination and also the support and assistance he has received from his Science teachers. In January Cathal will be competing with the other Biology medal winners – the silver and two bronze winners. Two of the four Biology finalists will be chosen to go forward and represent Ireland in the European Union Science Olympiad which will be held in Estonia in May 2016. We wish him the best of luck.
