MAY is turning out to be a very busy and celebratory period for Killorglin Community College – later this month 30 years in existence at its present-day location will be marked while last Thursday night the school held its annual student awards.
Awards were presented across a range of categories: attendance, academia, diligence, science, technology, young entrepreneur programme, ICT excellence, sports and extra-curricular activities, and music amongst others.
The prestigious Student of the Year Award was presented to Edel O'Shea by past pupil Dr Gerry Clifford.
"The awards night at Killorglin Community College has now become a tradition in the college and it gives the whole school community an opportunity to reflect on the academic year gone by. It is obvious from the list of catagories that much has happened in this college since September, in an academic, social, cultural and extra-curricular manner," said Com Moynihan, Principal.
"This has undoubtedly contributed to by the great community spirit that has existed and continues to exist within the college. Being nominated as the best student or most dilligent student by teachers is no trivial matter and students should be proud of what they have achieved during this academic year."
