Educational trips

Trips to exhibitions, shows, lectures, factories, careers exhibitions etc. are arranged for pupils taking subjects such as Geography, Science, Art, Physical Education, English, History and Agricultural Science.

School Tours

Visits usually take place during the school holidays to Northern Ireland, England and the Continent.

Team sports

Players and supporters enjoy matches played ‘home and away’. There are regular rugby and hockey competitions during the season against local schools, Dublin schools and further afield, including trips to Ulster, Munster and occasionally to England and the Continent. The senior rugby team has travelled to Canada and France.

Cultural Excursions

These also take place to various locations, more recently to mainland Europe through our involvement in European Studies and the Comenius Project.

Language Exchanges

Language exchange programmes to France and Germany have been operating for several years.

Debating and Public Speaking

Both Debating and Public Speaking enjoy high profiles in Kilkenny College. The junior and senior clubs thrive and pupils who participate are equipped with invaluable lifelong skills. We enter many International, National and Regional competitions.

Chess and Draughts

Chess and Draughts Clubs are active with pupils taking part in competitions, both inside and outside the College.

An Gaisce

Participation in the President’s Awards – Gold, Silver and Bronze – takes place each season. Some continue their involvement into Third Level.

Caving

This activity teaches pupils how to participate in an adventure activity in a safe and controlled way.

Worldwide

International adventure has brought pupils as far away as Vietnam and to Kenya. Training commences with regular hill walking in the uplands of the South East. Pupils train and prepare for two years, learning how to fund-raise for themselves and be fully fit for the rigours of trekking in difficult terrain and climate.

Community Work

Within Kilkenny, the College plays its part in raising money for charity, e.g. Bake sales, clothes and mobile phone collections to name but a few. There is also an Annual Musical Evening held every May and Carol singing at Christmas time to raise funds for local charities.

Publications

‘The Swift Review’ is a news magazine with articles and news written by volunteering pupils. It gives a flavour of life in the college and beyond.
