Dedicated followers of fashion would be well advised to put this Thursday night, May 25th, in their diaries as Castleisland Community College hosts its annual fundraising Fashion Show at the River Island Hotel at 7:30pm.
A great night is to be expected with both staff and students taking to the catwalk to raise funds for the school’s transition year programme.
So, if summer events are filling up your diary, it’s time to get the perfect outfit sorted, whether it’s a day at the races, a wedding, or a garden party, be prepared for much inspiration at our fashion show. The show will feature the latest trends from Castleisland – the Fashion Capital of Kerry and beyond.
Transition Year Programme
Tickets, priced at €10 for adults and €5 for U-18 students, are available from Castleisland Community College on 066 71 41196 or at the River Island Hotel on the night and you’re advised to come early to avoid disappointment.
The transition year programme, which will benefit from the show, offers students a year to mature and gain essential life and academic skills before commencing their leaving certificate. Transition year encourages students to develop personally and socially and grow in independence with more awareness of the world outside of school. Team projects working within the community or carrying out environmental field work, for example, help students to grow in awareness of these issues.
Transferable and Usable Skills.
Transition year focuses on the practical teaching of subjects to provide students with transferable and usable skills.
The programme changes every year to suit the intake but this year’s programme will involve the students working towards gaining a Gaisce Bronze Medal. This is an internationally recognised award run by the President of Ireland.
There are also Chinese classes and the creation of mini companies in conjunction with the Kerry County Enterprise Board.
Best Dressed Lady or Man
First Aid Training; Certified coaching and refereeing courses; Work experience and college taster programmes will all be part of the busy transition year programme for 2017.
It is an extremely busy year which is hugely beneficial to all students who participate in the transition year programme. Students emerge from transition year more mature, more confident, and better prepared for both their leaving certificate and their working life after school.
There will also be lots of spot prizes up for grabs and a prize for best dressed lady and man. The organising committee would like to thank most sincerely all the all sponsored prizes by local retailers.
