St Kevin’s Com­mu­nity Col­lege

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -


St Kevin’s open evening takes place on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 3, at 7 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. We would like to ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to all prospec­tive stu­dents and their par­ents/guardians to at­tend. Come and see our state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties and meet our ex­cel­lent staff and stu­dents. It will be a great op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the car­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tive com­mu­nity that sym­bol­ises the at­mos­phere in our school.


Last Fri­day our TY stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in ‘a day of ac­tion’ to run in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Ac­tive Stu­dent Strike in Dublin to mo­ti­vate the gov­ern­ment to pri­ori­tise Cli­mate Change.

Some of our TY stu­dents car­ried out a lit­ter pick and en­ergy sweep where they went around the school and pitch ar­eas col­lect­ing and sort­ing any lit­ter with oth­ers turn­ing off light switches and sock­ets that were not be­ing used prop­erly. The stu­dents also went into class­rooms to re­mind stu­dents to do the same at home and to raise aware­ness of this.

There was also a host of other ac­tiv­i­ties for our ju­nior school stu­dents such as a Ka­hoot ta­ble quiz, a fact hunt and a ‘Pin the Bin’ ac­tiv­ity. Our Green Schools team meet ev­ery Tues­day at 1.30 p.m. in room six and we ac­tively en­cour­age stu­dents to join.


On Wed­nes­day our school com­mu­nity came to­gether to take part in the Desk to a Mile Chal­lenge, a day when our teach­ers and stu­dents step away from our desks and run/jog/walk a mile. It was a fan­tas­tic day for the whole school com­mu­nity to join to­gether and sup­port each other in com­plet­ing our miles.

We also had a sports chal­lenge where our stu­dents and teach­ers par­tic­i­pated in all man­ner of events from sack races, long kick com­pe­ti­tions, egg and spoon races, re­lays, sprint races, etc.

All those that par­tic­i­pated on the day were treated to ice cream. It was a great day of Well­be­ing and we look for­ward to the event be­ing held again next year.
