Best of luck to everyone in the Summer Exams!
Mr Keegan, the Principal was interviewed this morning on K fm on the Kildare Today show by Mr Shane Beatty. Mr Keegan spoke about our current students, our plans for the coming year, and the plans for the new school building. The new school will be built on a 6.6 hectare site across from The Kerry Group in Millennium Park. The twelve million euro project will be a three storey, 10,000 metre square building with capacity for 1000 students. The building will have thirty seven general purpose classrooms, some of which will be multifunctional and will have removable walls. There will be six science labs, two Materials Technology (Wood Work) rooms, two Engineering rooms, two Art rooms, a meditation room, a library the size of two semi-detached houses, and various other rooms of different types.
Twenty students from Naas Community College, along with the Principal Mr Keegan and Ms Thornton, participated in a 'Hike for Life' in Glendalough today. Students hiked the Spinc trail, a 10km path through spectacular scenery that runs above the upper lough. All KWETB schools took part in the hike, promoting positive mental health in young people, and raising money for charities.
Planning permission for the new school building in Millennium Park has been submitted with Planning Number 16434.
The application can be viewed on the Kildare County Council Liteview Planning Enquiry System.

Well done to the Naas CC girls first year team led by Ms Thornton who reached the Midlands Final in their division. They played a great game against Tullamore in the final on the 5th of May. It was a nail-biting experience as the game was very close throughout. The final score was 27-25 to a strong Tullamore team. The girls have made us very proud. They all played brilliantly and have done so well for their first league in their first year. Well done and thank you to all involved. The team consisted of: Anastajia Culkova, Anna O'Donovan, Catherine Curran, Venus Nnabugwu, Diana Neza, Ellie Murphy, Gabriele Dulko, Neela Rahman, Vanessa Melgaile Horan, Sinead Tuohy, Kate Keogh and Haley McCormack.
