KCVS are hosting a non uniform/jersey day on Thursday 16th November in aid of the Lourdes Pilgrimage.

Students wishing to take part in the non uniform day are asked to bring in €2.

Donations are also greatly welcome.

Two students from 5th Year/Transition Year will be heading to Lourdes later in the school year to help the elderly and sick on their pilgrimages. As this comes at a cost the school will be helping to fund raise.

Thank you all in advance.

KCVS is off to the AVIVA


Tickets have arrived for the winner takes all WORLD CUP PLAYOFF vs Denmark.

Savour Kilkenny 2017

Huge congratulations to Kilkenny City Vocational Students on hard work and dedication over last number of weeks. The diligence paid off!

Students planned and implemented a very impressive stand for Savour Kilkenny this year. This was a team effort that saw cross curricular approach, from Home Economics to Art, Woodwork and many more.

Students got the opportunity to showcase and develop on key life skills include baking, budgeting and communication skills to name but a few!

Thank you to every member of the public who supported us as a school, we really appreciate it.

A huge thank you also to the School Completion Programme with Carlow Kilkenny ETB that assisted in making this a success. What a success it was!

Before close of day students had managed to charm the lovely public and the students fully sold out!

Well done to all involved especially our Home Economics teacher Ms. Doyle.

The following pictures are a small snapshot of this years event, where the beautiful personalities of our lovely students shines through.
