Over 120 proud students were presented with their QQI Certificates in Killarney Community College on Thursday last.

Awards were presented to both day and night students of the College. Day students graduated in Office Administration, a full-time Level 5/6 one year course. Night course Award Recipients had studied Challenging Behaviour, Daily Patient Living, Early Childhood Care and Education, Special Needs Assisting, and Accounting Manual and Computerised. These achievements greatly represent the College Mission Statement of ‘Excellence in Learning for Life through Respect, Responsibility and Inclusion’.

Director of Adult Education in Killarney Community College, John Keane, congratulated all the recipients and commended them for their commitment and the personal sacrifices made by many to complete their courses. He reminded graduates of the importance of QQI Certification and encouraged them not to stop now.  College tutors were also in attendance and Mr Keane acknowledged them for the tuition, guidance and support afforded to the students over the year.

The highly successful evening ended with light refreshments and an opportunity for students to meet with their peers and tutors.

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In our latest online poll we asked our readers if they had reduced their social contacts over the course of the last week.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
