Extract from Irish Independent Article 27/9/2012

Pupils from Synge Street CBS in Dublin´s south inner city regularly beat the rest of Ireland EU and even the world in competitions carrying off top honours in 24 major events in less than a decade.

The 276-pupil Synge Street has students from 37 countries and 13pc of pupils have been diagnosed with a special educational need.

In its latest triumph Eric Doyle and Mark Kelly carried off the top physics prize in the European Union Contest for Young Scientists with a project based on their victorious entry in the BT Young Scientist contest last January -- an unprecedented third win for the school.

The duo whose project looked at the motion of the planets and how satellites can stay on the right flight path did their Leaving Certificate in June and both are now studying Theoretical Physics: Eric in UCD and Mark in TCD.

Proud principal Michael Minnock admits: "There is no easy way to do this. It is inspiration coupled with perspiration."  Read the full article by Katherine Donnelly in the Independent here
