St. Kil­ian’s Com­mu­nity School

Bray People - - SCHOOLS REPORT -


On Mon­day 24th of March stu­dents of 5LCA took part in a mock in­ter­views pro­vided by Elavon. These in­ter­views are part of the Skills @ work pro­gramme that St.Kil­ians takes part in with Elavon.

Stu­dents had to ap­ply for a job in Elavon via their web­site and at­tend for in­ter­view with a num­ber of Elavon staff mem­bers. This is no easy task but our stu­dents were well pre­pared thanks to Elavon's CV and in­ter­view skills work­shop ear­lier in the year.

Stu­dents were given great feed­back from the Elavon staff and pre­sented them­selves very well at in­ter­view. This will give them a great ad­van­tage in fu­ture in­ter­views. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all who took part and a very big thank you to Elavon. ORI­EN­TEER­ING

On Wed­nes­day 12th March, 32 stu­dents from St Kil­ian's C.S. took part in the Le­in­ster Schools' Ori­en­teer­ing Cham­pi­onship. Hopes were high af­ter a num­ber of wins in the Le­in­ster Schools' League as stu­dents had been show­ing con­sis­tently good form through­out the win­ter.

The Event was held in Djouce Woods in Co. Wick­low. The con­di­tions on the day were ideal and made for good run­ning. The cour­ses were both tech­ni­cally and phys­i­cally chal­leng­ing with the steep slopes in the woods.

Many stu­dents who were ex­pected to do well may have un­der­es­ti­mated the com­plex­ity of the chal­lenge and did not find the cour­ses as easy as ex­pected. Con­sis­tency and level head­ed­ness won the day for more cau­tious run­ners.

1st year Girls: Erin Con­nelly came 3rd and Ines Cueto 4th. TY Girls: Lucy Master­son was 2nd fastest in­di­vid­ual fin­isher. TY Boys:1st Jessie Lopez II, 2nd Evan Wil­liams, 3rd Ab­dul­lah Balas­meh and in 5th Dmitri Chizhikov. 5th/6th Year Girls: 1st - Sarah McGrath and Sophie Mooney in 3rd. 5th/6th Year Boys: Brendan Smith was the fastest fin­isher from St Kil­ian's.

All the stu­dents were happy with their re­sults and are look­ing for­ward to trav­el­ling to Emo Court to take part in the Ir­ish Schools Cham­pi­onship, which hap­pens on the 8th of April. CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS

They put in a great team ef­fort through­out with Finn Kelly, Me­gan Brad­shaw and Cian Red­den all in su­perb form.

The U10s trav­elled to Carnew early Satur­day morn­ing and felt very hard done by af­ter a 2-1 de­feat.
