RTE Filming in KCC - Broadcast 9th October 2020

 

CLICK HERE TO WATCH BE DEMENTIA AWARE ON THE TODAY SHOW

WELL DONE to Be Dementia Aware and their teacher Ms. Lorraine Crowley on a very exciting event here in the college. On 14th September 2020, Bláthnaid Treacy from RTÉ's "Today with Maura and Dáithí" interviewed this inspirational group of students and their teacher about the dementia awareness campaign the students started working on as part of their Young Social Innovators class in September 2018. Two years on, they are now nominated for a National Garda Youth Achievement Award and RTÉ chose to film the group as part of this nomination.

 

"The dedication and care Be Dementia Aware showed throughout this project is an inspiration to all young people. Caoimhe, Julia, Ben, Aoife and Darja showed amazing commitment and passion as they worked tirelessly to promote awareness of Dementia and support families and people who have dementia. This award nomination is very well deserved and to be filmed by RTÉ has been the icing on the cake for the 5 students. It was such a fun afternoon with Bláthnaid and camera man Conor". Ms. Lorraine Crowley

Ceramic Tile Piece for Killarney Tidy Towns

 

On Wednesday 9th September three 6th Year art students, with their art teacher Ms M Mahony and SNA Doirin Duggan, went up to Chapel Lane in Killarney town to install a ceramic tile art piece they had created with their art class. This day was long awaited as the piece was ready to be place in its permanent location last March. However with school told to close because of lockdown the students had to wait until last week for all their amazing work to go on display.

 

The idea for the permanent art piece came from Killarney Tidy Towns seeing other amazing work the art department were doing on our social media. Eileen O’Donoghue from the Tidy Towns visited Ms Mahony in October 2019 to see would it be possible for the art students to create a piece to enhance a laneway in Killarney Town. This proposal was a huge privilege to the art department and work began straight away to create a piece. Ms Mahony drew up a design that would remain a surprise to the students until they completed the project. Each students was asked to create ceramic tiles using fresh clay and then after firing in a kiln they used ceramic glazes to paint the tiles. The students also had to leave some areas of their tiles completely blank and glaze that area white.

 

The project was greatly support by Doirin Duggan an SNA in the school who is also a ceramic artist. Doirin kindly gave of her time to help students make their tiles and also fired all the tiles in her own kiln. When all the tiles were complete the design was revealed to students as they arrived back to school last week. The overall design is based on a window in Muckross Abbey. The students had to create designs that reflected nature and their local environment. Each tile is an art piece in itself and makes up an overall visually striking image. The piece is now on permanent display in Chapel Lane. It is such an honour for the art students and the art department to have a piece placed in Killarney town to forever more enhance its surrounds. A huge thank you to a Killarney Tidy Towns for giving the art department such a unique opportunity and they look forward to working in some more similar art projects in the future.

Deenagh Fairy Trail

 

Just in time for midterm, the TY students finally got to reveal all of their hard work with the Art  Department by the installation of seven fairy houses creating a fairy trail ( and a little magic!!) along Deenagh river walk. 

 

The project started when Killarney Looking Good committee members called to art teacher Ms Michelle Mahony in October last year with ideas for art students to make fairy houses. A lot of thought and planning went into what theme would be given to the fairy trail and it was decided that the fairy houses would reflect the history and landscape around Killarney. Work began last year to source materials. The students wanted to use materials that were as natural as possible so tree trucks were got from different locations and other materials like stone, glass, slate were collected.

 

The project was delayed by school closures last year but in Sept TY students, along 

with Kerri McCarthy, TY co-ordinator and Ms Michelle Mahony in the Art Department got to work at completing the pieces. The fairies ,that houses were made for, are as follows:

 

• The Deenagh Fairy

•The Copper Mines Fairy

• The Waterfall Fairy

• The Abbey Fairy

• The Bricin Dinis Fairy 

• The Castle Fairy

• Fairy of the Forest

 

This week saw the installation of the pieces into their permanent home just across the road from the school along the river walk. It was wonderful to see the pieces finally installed today and we hope that they bring lots of joy to both young and old alike. This has been the second project that the Art Department have worked with ‘Killarney Looking Good’ committed on in the last year and it has been a huge honour to install another project that will enhance the local environment. If you are lucky enough to be 5km from Deenagh this midterm they are definitely worth a visit to go and see.
