It was with great pride, that the staff of Deerpark CBS learned that one of its students had been awarded an All Ireland Scholarship for his outstanding Leaving Certificate results. Oliwier Mellon, who obtained 585 points in his Leaving Cert, received his scholarship from former US President Bill Clinton at a ceremony in UL which was attended by his family and school principal.
The scholarships are awarded to the top 100 performing students in the Leaving Cert who meet the eligibility criteria and so it is a great achievement for Oliwier and the school that he is in this select group. The purpose of these scholarships is to ensure that students are supported in their university studies and there is no doubt but that Oliwier will apply himself diligently to his studies in UCC, just as he diligently applied himself to his studies whilst a student in Deerpark CBS. Well done Oliwier!
