Letter from the CAO
A reminder to Leaving Cert students and their parents. Students will have received a letter from the CAO. It is of vital importance that students read and understand the letter. It is vital that they check that their CAO number, Exam number, date of birth and name are completely correct. If they are not students need to get in touch with the CAO and correct any error. Any parent of leaving certificate students worried about the CAO form and their son/daughters choices please feel free to contact me
