“The academic award will be awarded to the student who achieves the highest academic award in the 2023 Leaving Certificate examination.  This year’s academic award is sponsored by Dr Patrick Quaid, a past pupil who is the immediate past president of the College of Optometrists of Ontario, Canada, and founder and director of Optometric Services, VU-Cubed Vision Therapy,” Mr Talty said.

“The Ethos and Transformation Bursary Awards are sponsored by the Redemptorist Perpetual Help Fund. The Ethos Award is presented to the student who has actively supported the ethos and values of St Clement’s College over his years of attendance.”
