Huge BT success for Moate Community School

What better way to start 2021 than with such fantastic results from BTYS. MCS has always been a strong participant in BTYS and this year all that hard work and commitment on the part of students and teachers was rewarded.

After working tirelessly since August and participating in intense online interviews over the Christmas holidays the announcements yesterday made it all worthwhile.

The school won 8 awards and one Highly Commended.

 To begin with BT recognised the school as Best School in the ROI and awarded one of our teachers, Ms. Mairead Cusack the title of  Perrigo Educator of Excellence in Biological Sciences.
