This time next week thousands of students across Ireland will be sitting the English Paper I of both Leaving Certificate and Junior Certificate Examinations. And true to course the sun has arrived as per usual.

Most students are finishing revision classes today and it will be down to constant home studying for the next week in the final preparation and study rush. The sun is most welcome by most of us but it is a real deterrent for these students.

So folks, while you enjoy basking in the fantastic sunshine today, take a moment to think about those students who are in the classroom, bedroom, kitchen etc putting the final touches to their revision.

Good luck guys and gals with the final week of study. The sun will hopefully return or preferable stay indefinitely and you can all enjoy it at the end of June. Keep the heads down and give the next few days your all.
