SCI-FEST

On Tues­day, May 10, 13 stu­dents from sec­ond year and fourth year, along with their Sci­ence teach­ers, at­tended Sci Fest in IT Tal­laght. Sci Fest is a one-day Sci­ence fair where stu­dents present their projects to judges, and at­tend lec­tures and sem­i­nars on in­ter­est­ing Sci­ence news and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties in STEM.

This year, the stu­dents’ projects ranged over Maths, Physics, Chem­istry and Bi­ol­ogy, with ex­per­i­ments com­pleted about such var­ied sub­jects as chicken nuggets, bak­ing cakes, healthy eat­ing, home ad­van­tage, tor­na­dos, lis­ten­ing to mu­sic, and pa­per aero­planes.

Well done to Melinda Sz­abo, Ciara Camp­bell, Weronika Roszczak, Jor­dan de Sousa, Gra­ham Kane, Dag­mara To­maszewska, So­phie Thomas, Ger­mán Blasco Ar­royo, Zoe Kelly, Ni­amh Lead­bet­ter, Kalum Walsh, Jamie Gun­ning and Ni­amh Mur­ray for get­ting in­volved, and thanks to all those who helped and par­tic­i­pated in the projects.

Thanks to Ms Lawlor and Ms Ryan for all their hard work and en­cour­age­ment to the stu­dents.

GREEN SCHOOL AWARE­NESS

On Tues­day, May 12, a Green School Aware­ness Day was or­gan­ised by Mr Dono­hoe and the Green School Com­mit­tee to cel­e­brate the school be­ing re­cently awarded the green flag for lit­ter and waste man­age­ment.

Art projects on the themes of waste man­age­ment and ef­fec­tive re­cy­cling were dis­played and judged by the stu­dents in a vote. An au­dio-vis­ual dis­play was shown to all the stu­dents about the work of the com­mit­tee and many fun ac­tiv­i­ties and games were also held to en­gage the stu­dents.

In ad­di­tion, this year’s en­tries from the Junk Kou­ture com­pe­ti­tion were on dis­play. Mr Dono­hoe spoke about his pride at the school be­ing awarded the green flag and praised the work of his pre­de­ces­sor, Mr Law­less, and suc­ces­sive Green School Com­mit­tees in St Kil­ian’s over the years.

Great credit is due to the en­ergy and ded­i­ca­tion of ev­ery­one in­volved in mak­ing St Kil­ian’s a tidy and clean en­vi­ron­ment of which we can be proud. A fun-filled and in­for­ma­tive day was had by all who at­tended the aware­ness day.

DE­BAT­ING

Best wishes to the se­nior de­bat­ing team of Josh O’Con­nell, Adelin Co­jan, Bar­bara Krupin­ska and Pa­trycja Struzyn­ska who take on Pres. Bray in the fi­nal of the Bray Lions’ Club De­bat­ing com­pe­ti­tion on Mon­day, May 16.

St Kil­ian’s are to op­pose the mo­tion that: ‘Cli­mate Change is dam­ag­ing Ire­land’s eco-sys­tem’. The team and their men­tors have been work­ing hard to come up with co­gent ar­gu­ments on this chal­leng­ing topic, and we wish them ev­ery suc­cess in the fi­nal.

SPORTS DAY

The an­nual sports day in St Kil­ian’s is due to take place on Wed­nes­day, May 18. Mr Con­way has been busy or­gan­is­ing the many ath­letic and fun events for the stu­dents and an en­joy­able day is guar­an­teed for ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pates in any way.

The sports day will cul­mi­nate in the an­nual soc­cer match be­tween the Sixth Year stu­dents and teach­ers. The Sixth Years have been vic­to­ri­ous for the past two years, and the smart money is on the cur­rent crop of stu­dents to make it a hat-trick of vic­to­ries over their ‘more ex­pe­ri­enced’ op­po­nents.

This year, there will also be a rounders match be­tween the Sixth Year girls and the fe­male staff. So a lot of pride and brag­ging rights are at stake be­tween the stu­dents and staff in St Kil­ian’s. May the best teams win! Best of luck to ev­ery­one in­volved.

PRAC­TI­CAL AND ORAL EX­AMS

Best of luck to the Leav­ing, Ju­nior and LCA stu­dents who are cur­rently busy do­ing prac­ti­cal and oral ex­am­i­na­tions. The stu­dents and their teach­ers have worked hard in prepa­ra­tion for the ex­ams and the best of luck to ev­ery­one in­volved.

EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL CLEANUP

Well done to the Fifth and TY stu­dents who did a cleanup of Bray beach and the sur­round­ing ar­eas of St Kil­ian’s on Wed­nes­day, May 11. The cleanup was or­gan­ised by Mr Dono­hoe and it was a great suc­cess. Well done to ev­ery­one in­volved.
