Welcome Note

Dear parents and students,

 

Welcome to Killarney Community College. We are a secondary School, under the governing body of Kerry Education and Training Board (Kerry ETB), which is co-educational and multi-belief in ethos.

It is difficult to sum up the warm atmosphere and great pupil/teacher relationship but we hope to give you a taste of school life from this website.
Our aim in the college is to create a school where each person is respected, valued and supported. The college has a caring and committed staff and while placing emphasis on the academic tradition of our school, we are extremely conscious of providing a holistic education for all students.

The college has been chosen as a Pilot network school for the new Junior Cycle. This has enabled the college to be at the forefront of curriculum change and new teaching methodologies.

We endeavour to work in partnership with all members of the school community: students, teachers, parents and the Board of Management. Together, we developed a mission statement. This acts as a constant reminder to keep every one focused on the important principles under which the college operates:

“Excellence in learning for life, through Respect, Responsibility and Inclusion”

We hope you enjoy our College experience.

 

Mise le meas,
Fiona O’Brien
Principal
