Educate Together’s ‘Ethical Teacher of the Year’ award 2019

Our own Ciara McMackin was named Ethical Education Teacher of the Year at a gala dinner in the Clarence Hotel Dublin on Friday 17th May.

This national award recognises Ciara’s work and commitment to Ethical Education on three levels: the excellence of her classroom teaching, the leadership that she provides in Kishoge CC as Co-ordinator of Ethical Education and the leadership she provides nationally to the network of Educate Together schools. Ciara is the driving force behind the development of the senior cycle Ethical Ed. Curriculum.

All in Kishoge are very proud of Ciara’s receipt of this well-deserved recognition.

TY Trip to Castletown House

As part of the TY history course, Kishoge students study their local aristocratic houses - Castletown and Carton house. We organise a trip for all of the students to visit both of the houses with guided tour. Students are also given the option of taking part in an organised cycle on this day instead of taking a bus.

Teaching & Learning in Kishoge Community College will be an interactive and collaborative experience for students where our role as teachers will often be teacher as facilitator. We will be creative, innovative and open to new ideas in our approach to methodology. We will adopt a holistic approach to our teaching, seeing ourselves first and foremost as teachers of students (as opposed to teachers of subjects). We will share responsibility for the development of literacy and numeracy of our students and for our students’ social, personal and ethical development. We will focus on the needs of each individual student: every student in KCC must be enabled to experience success. Our approach to teaching will be open and collaborative: our doors will be open and we will develop a strong culture of sharing ideas and resources. Assessment both for and of learning, will be an integral part of our teaching practice.
