This rapidly growing IME stream is bringing with it tremendous success.
  This year, the 8 year 12   IME students had tremendous success in their GCSEs achieving 7A*, 11A, 23B and 29Cs between them. This includes one IME student, Anna Ní Nualláin achieving outstanding results 4A*, 5A and 1B. Indeed Anna has achieved top girl in the entire Year 12 year group.

These students are a credit to their parents, bunscoileanna and St. Malachy’s High School.

Indeed the 8 year 9 students have already started to follow in their footsteps, achieving exceptionally highly at GCSE Irish, a full 3 years early. The Year 9 students have gained 2A*, 3A and 3B.  Again, these hard working students are a credit to their families, bunscoileanna and Ardscoil Naomh Maolmhaodhóg.
