On Wednesday 20th December Kilkenny City Vocational School, teachers and student were in the festive spirit to celebrate the academic achievements of their Junior Students since the start of this school year.
Under the umbrella of the Junior Certificate Schools Programme, the Christmas Awards Celebration took place in the school library to recognise the work and dedication students had put in over the last few months.
As we are half way through the school year it is important to affirm to students that every day of school counts towards their success and this year our First, Second and Third Year students had not let us down.
Teacher nominations were made in each of the subject areas and after much debate, certificates were awarded in each of the areas. Exemplary awards were given to students who had excelled in attendance and also students who have gone that extra mile in their learning and extra- curricular activities.
The morning of celebration, which was organised by Mr Henebery, Mr Holden and Ms Duggan, culminated in an afternoon of ice skating which was kindly funded by the School Completion Programme.
