Reflection of the Week
Holy Child School Killiney Holy Child School Killiney


In order to achieve the highest standards and results, it is necessary to provide students with the best possible facilities. At HCK, our academic, sporting and creative facilities continue to be regularly updated which includes the most recent addition of a new Sports Hall.  Further development will take place as part of our Master Plan which will ensure that we continue at all times to respond to "the wants of the age" (CC).

A fully equipped art room allows students to explore their creativity in an attractive space, which provides facilities for all artistic media to be pursued. The results of the students' creativity can be seen throughout the school.

Music is a very important aspect of life in HCK. Whether the students favour a little classical piano; want to bang out the beat on the samba drums, or use the IT facilities to mix up something unique - all tastes are catered for and encouraged in the music department.

Science Laboratories
State of the art science laboratories provide the perfect environment to nurture the students' interest in the sciences. With much emphasis placed on practical experiments in biology, chemistry and physics, the generously proportioned and highly equipped labs afford every student the opportunity to put theory into practice.

Home Economics
The practical aspect of this popular subject is located in a warm and friendly kitchen, where the students combine learning, enjoyment and practical application in well-equipped surroundings.

Computer Room
Responding to the "wants of the age", the HCK computer room is equipped with all of the latest technologies to afford our students the most up-to-date practical knowledge of this essential subject.

Steeped in the history of the school, the well-stockeds and curated library provides a tranquil haven for study & research.

Connecting the daily life of the students with the teachings and relevance of the Christian Gospel is central to the teachings of Cornelia Connelly. The beautiful HCK chapel with its unique stained glass "wall", afford students a quiet space for thought and reflection.

Prayer Room
An alternative space for reflection, its homely atmosphere provides the perfect environment or some quiet time out alone, or for a small prayer gathering.

Every student is encouraged to participate in a range of sports, for which excellent facilities, both indoors and out, include a new fully equipped Sport Hall which accommodates many indoor disciplines including Basketball and a full Physical Education Programme; the All-weather AstroTurf hockey pitch allows HCK continue to nurture its tradition of hockey successes; hard court tennis courts and the school's lush grounds provide the perfect setting for athletics and tennis.
