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.
FRENCH EXCHANGE STUDENTS
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.
JUNIOR RUGBY SUCCESS
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.
