St. Kevin's Awards Evening 2023

We were delighted to host our Annual Awards evening on Thursday
St. Kevin's Awards Evening 2023

On Thursday evening, St. Kevin's Community College hosted its annual Awards Evening, which turned out to be a highly successful event with a strong attendance.

Principal Brian Doran warmly welcomed everyone and emphasised the significance of acknowledging and celebrating the accomplishments of the students. In line with the theme of the evening, Mr Doran stressed the importance of hard work and incremental improvement.

Councillor Patsy Glennon, Chairperson of the Board of Management, also addressed the audience. Cllr. Glennon told the audience about his time and school and how his career progressed in later life. He expressed support for the students and staff of St. Kevin's on behalf of the entire board. We were also joined by Cllr. Avril Cronin, who is also a member of the Board of Management.

We were honoured to welcome Jim Schofield as our keynote speaker for the evening. He captivated the crowd with his inspiring story of building a sailboat during the lockdown and successfully sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on a solo voyage. Jim's narrative perfectly encapsulated the values our awards night represents: hard work, perseverance, and endeavour.

Throughout the event, we had the privilege of presenting over 300 awards to students who demonstrated outstanding effort and commitment throughout the year. These awards were determined based on the scores given by teachers during term exams, reflecting the students' diligence and dedication. While we do recognise academic brilliance, the majority of awards handed out at our annual Awards Evening, celebrate the effort put forth by students throughout the year.

Additionally, we recognized students who exhibited excellent attendance this year, recognising the fundamental role of regular school attendance in paving the way for their future success. Among the winners, 17 students achieved perfect attendance, having missed zero days, while 18 students missed only one day. We also presented our incoming prefects with their badges, we look forward to working with them next year.

Overall, the St. Kevin's Community College Annual Awards Evening was a remarkable celebration of academic achievement, resilience, and commitment. We would like to thank all who joined us for this special evening, and we extend our congratulations to all the deserving award recipients.
