We would like to congratulate the students and teachers of St Kevin’s Boys School here in Kilnamanagh who are the winners of our June Community Champion award.
Students and teachers worked hard before the end of the school year to ensure their school was the one chosen as the winner of the 30 iPads up for grabs from Ireland’s RSA.
The competition which was done through social media, saw pupils at the school participate in a video which then was viewed by many of you online. St Kevin’s received the most views online therefore winning them the 30 iPads.
Fourth class teacher Emer Maher told us of her delight at the win, “We are absolutely delighted and want to thank all the local businesses for their great coverage and especially The Square because I know a lot of families will shop there and without them I don’t think we would have gotten all the votes that we needed. It’s great for the local school, we have no iPads here so the kids are absolutely chuffed to get a whole set.”
The school also received a €100 Gift Card from The Square to which Emer said she hopes will be spent on some of the accessories to go with iPads.
