Trocaire - "Connecting for Change"

This Lent, Trocaire launched a 'Connecting for Change' campaign. On 7th and 8th March, schools across Ireland were encouraged to connect with their classmates and create change by fundraising for Trocaire's important oversea's projects. So, last Friday, a fourth year Religion class in Killarney Community College decided to come together and run a marathon - as a class. 25 students and their teacher, Andrea Thornton, togged off and each ran a mile around the Domain in Killarney. When everybody passed the finish line, the entire class had run a marathon, together.


World Spelling Day - Spell Off

On 5th March 2013, First Years from Killarney Community College spelled their way to success on World Spelling Day. Initially competing within their classes, nine super spellers later battled it out in a 'Spell-Off' Final in front of their peers. After five tense rounds, we were left with two top spellers who continued to spell spar for a further four nail-biting bouts. But in the end, it was ironically the word 'disappointment' which saw Oisin O'Shea bow out of the competition. Spelling Champion Sarah O'Riordain won a voucher for The Dungeon bookshop in Killarney.


Film Making - Lights, Camera, Action!!

Killarney Community College had Oscar fever this week as students took on the challenge of film making for themselves. As part of the Junior Certificate Schools Programme 20 Second Year students wrote, filmed and edited their very own film. Having received funding the students set about brainstorming film ideas and script writing with local writer John W. Sexton. Under the guidance of Mr Sexton students created not only one possible film script but six in total. After a deliberation process students finally decided on the Film ‘Milk’ written by all 20 students involved in the programme.


Business in the Community - Marks and Spencer

On Friday 1st March, 2013 a great opportunity arose for the L.C.V.P. students at KCC. Mr. Paul Daly, Ms. Eileen Fitzgerald, Aine (M&S staff member) and Ms. K. McCarthy held mock job interviews for the students. The students got a real life role play interview with positive feedback that will aid them when interviewing for a job outside of school.

Irish Writing Masterclass

 Last Tuesday, January 29th, 11 fourth year students attended an Irish Writing Masterclass organised by KES. Students had an opportunity to work with well renowned authors and poets to improve their writing skills. The students began their day with a workshop from Séamus Barra Ó Suilleabháin. He told them how to brainstorm ideas and how to construct a poem and by the end of the first hour all students had composed excellent Irish poems.
After the break, Killarney Community College students met with well known author, poet and translator Gabriel Fitzmaurice. This was a lively meeting with students writing several riddles in Irish before breaking up for lunch. In the afternoon Dairena Ní Chinnéide from Dingle coached the students in the art of writing poetry. The 10 young men and Joanne had great fun picking items from a bag of props and trying to compose a poem based on the prop.
The KES will shortly be publishing samples of the students work on their website, and if funding allows a book of their work will be released.
