The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

THE In­ter­me­di­ate School Kil­lor­glin has a dis­tin­guished rep­u­ta­tion for ed­u­ca­tion in Mid Kerry for over 100-years. Today, the school con­tin­ues to be at the cen­tre of ex­cel­lence in mod­ern ed­u­ca­tion with a pro­fes­sional team of staff ded­i­cated to en­rich­ing the over­all stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The school is pri­mar­ily about learn­ing and the aim is to give a more rounded ed­u­ca­tion to each stu­dent. The goal is per­sonal de­vel­op­ment, par­al­lel to aca­demic achieve­ment. We also ac­knowl­edge that each stu­dent is dif­fer­ent and has unique tal­ents and abil­i­ties and we sup­port every­one to achieve their po­ten­tial,” said School Prin­ci­pal, Joe O’Dwyer.

“We have a proud tra­di­tion and the school has al­ways had a de­served rep­u­ta­tion for aca­demic re­sults and these re­sults have al­ways gone in tan­dem with a fo­cus on ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties such as sport, mu­sic and drama, school tours and pub­lic speak­ing. We’re very happy to see past pupils suc­ceed in ev­ery walk of life,” he added.

The In­ter­me­di­ate School Kil­lor­glin views its proud tra­di­tion as a plat­form on which stu­dents can avail of bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties and re­cent in­vest­ment in terms of school in­fra­struc­ture is an ex­am­ple of the school build­ing to­wards a bet­ter fu­ture.

“We’re al­ways in­vest­ing in our fa­cil­i­ties and keep­ing ev­ery­thing mod­ern and up to date. For ex­am­ple, we’re ex­tremely proud of our new sci­ence build­ing and we’re al­ways con­sid­er­ing new de­vel­op­ments and projects for the school,” said Joe.

Reg­u­lar en­ter­tain­ment and per­for­mance is a sta­ple of school life at the In­ter­me­di­ate School Kil­lor­glin and an award-win­ning clas­si­cal pian­ist will per­form there on De­cem­ber 1. This will be fol­lowed by the an­nual school con­cert on De­cem­ber 5 and 6 with fur­ther events sched­uled to take place through­out the win­ter. It’s all hap­pen­ing at In­ter­me­di­ate School Kil­lor­glin where stu­dent life is never dull and par­tic­i­pa­tion and in­clu­sion is al­ways en­cour­aged.
