It certainly was an active week at Kildare as students embraced Physical Education Week.
With activities including Yoga, Archery, Bocce, Badminton, Smoothie Bikes and more, there was something for everyone to try!
Concluding the week was our Interhouse Volleyball Grand Final and we congratulate Nagle for winning the tournament for 2023!
Our 2024 Year 7 students enjoyed their Transition Day at Kildare!
They learnt all about the College, engaged in STEM, Science, Drama and PE activities and watched our Music and Dance students perform. Across the day they also made some special items to treasure for years to come. We are excited to welcome them back to Kildare next year as Year 7 students!
This morning we welcomed our Years 7 and 8 families to Kildare for our special Grandparents' Day Breakfast.
There was a great buzz of excitement as the students cherished the quality time with their grandparents or significant older person in their life. Together, they enjoyed decorating wooden Christmas ornaments made at Kildare and touring the Tullow Centre.
More photos will be in our College blog released on Friday.
Today is World Kindness Day. What does kindness mean to you? What acts of kindness have you shown others? What acts of kindness have others shown you? Research has shown that kindness improves and benefits lives in many ways.

'They shall not grow old,
As we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them'
