On Tues­day, De­cem­ber 15, 1st Year Mu­sic class held a con­cert in the Can­teen at lunchtime, as part of Seach­tain na Gaeilge. Courtney McLean and Rachel Mol­loy put on a won­der­ful dis­play of Ir­ish Dancing while Cliona Whit­tle played “Britches full of Stitches” on the whis­tle ac­com­pa­nied by PJ Mol­loy and Dirk Beukes. The Whole 1st year class sang “The Gal­way Girl” and “The Man who can't be moved”, both songs by Ir­ish per­form­ers. The singers were ac­com­pa­nied by Oisin Har­ney Crowe on gui­tar and Dy­lan Mullen on Drums.


St Kevin’s is cur­rently host­ing staff and stu­dents from Col­lege Saint-Vin­cent from the town of Bris­sac, in the Loire Val­ley. A group of 45 stu­dents and four teach­ers ar­rived on Wed­nes­day March 23 and will spend one week in the Col­lege, whilst staying with lo­cal fam­i­lies.

This ex­change is now well es­tab­lished as an im­por­tant part of the ex­tra cur­ric­u­lar life of St Kevin's and its suc­cess is due to the French Depart­ment, Ms Camp­bell, Ms Denon­ain, Ms Walsh and Ms Ayl­ward. A busy pro­gramme of events is or­gan­ised for the vis­it­ing stu­dents in­clud­ing school based ac­tiv­i­ties and vis­its to places of cul­tural in­ter­est.


Well done to the Ju­nior Rugby team who played a friendly re­cently against Pipers Hill Col­lege, Naas. St Kevin's had a great win with a fi­nal score of 14 - 10. Two tries from Dy­lan Waters and Shane Barrett gave St Kevin’s the edge.

A great team per­for­mance from the en­tire squad en­sured suc­cess for St. Kevin’s. This was a friendly or­gan­ised to give the Ju­nior team ex­pe­ri­ence for fu­ture competition. Thanks to Johnny Holmes from Naas RFC and Mau­rice Teague from Wex­ford RFC for their con­tri­bu­tion to Rugby de­vel­op­ment in St Kevin's and also to Oisin Walsh (5th Year) who or­gan­ises train­ing for the Ju­nior Team.
