The KCVS community is an all encompassing, welcoming and inclusive one, we welcome people from all cultures, socioeconomic strata, gender, religion and race. A result of this means we welcome a healthy cohort of international students, some permanent some temporary, through our doors every year. With the aim of reaching as much of the KCVS community as possible in mind, Mr Fogarty has supplied a hugely beneficial Translated Resource. This resource will undoubtedly be of great value to, firstly our students, but perhaps more importantly to family members of our students, who may not have the same grasp of English to comprehend pivotal messages from the authorities that may be life-saving. The document can be found in the Support and Advice tab in the header menu at the top of the page. Thanks once again to Mr Fogarty for this invaluable resource.
For the latest on the Coronavirus regarding the support of the continuity of teaching and learning in the event of an extension to public health measures, please go to the COVID-19 tab in the title menu above thank you.
A Message from the Principal.
An Scáth Le Cheile
In these unprecedented and most challenging of times, we in Kilkenny City Vocational School are meeting this challenge head on and we are succeeding.
Whilst are doors are closed and our corridors are eerily quiet our virtual classrooms are buzzing!
Teams, Podcasts, Padlets, Zoom, Flipped Classrooms, Online Quizzes Webinars, and Virtual School Tours are the order of the day!
I am astounded and extremely proud at the level of innovation, creativity and sheer ingenuity of all our teachers and students to ensure that our business of teaching and learning continues.
This gives me great hope for the future when life resumes as normal and this cloud passes. The sun will shine again and it will be brighter and stronger for all of us.
As our school motto says “We are stronger together” and even though we have to remain apart for the moment we are reaching out to each other in so many supportive ways!
Keep reaching out, keep supporting each other, keep engaging!
Stay positive and stay safe and protect each other and your families by staying apart.
We are all in this together and together we will succeed.
“Taobh le taobh, ag foghlaim ‘s ag fás”
This too shall pass.
Cathy McSorley & all in KCVS
