Holy Child Killiney
Actions Not Words


At HCK, we recognise that each individual is different and we aim to provide each one of them with an interesting and enjoyable education, filled with intellectual, creative and physical stimulation.

Our pupils range in age from 12 to 19, and they all undertake a 6 year cycle, annually divided into 3 academic terms.

Of the 400 students enrolled in HCK, many of them are from the Greater Dublin and Wicklow areas, with easy access afforded by the DART and dedicated school bus service. Some of our students travel from much further afield, as we also welcome international students who we accommodate with welcoming host families in the local area.

In order to fully avail of the many opportunities afforded by HCK, all students are actively encouraged to become involved in every aspect of school life. Our HCK girls of 2024/25 are being led by Head Girl, and Student Council Chairperson, Anna Kenny and Deputy Head Girl, with responsibility as Music Prefect, Daisy Hickey.

The Student Council aims and objectives are as follows:

  • To enhance communication between students, management, staff and parents.
  • To promote an environment conducive to educational and personal development.
  • To promote friendship and respect among pupils.
  • To support the management and staff in the development of the school.
  • To represent the views of the students on matters of general concern to them.
  • To promote the core values as defined in the Mission Statement of Holy Child School Killiney
  • To be aware of and embody the Ethos of the school and its Cornelian influence so that all can advance in a spirit of co-operation and mutual support to the benefit of pupils, teachers, parents, guardians and the Community.
  • To provide opportunities for discussion, information and consultation about matters of concern to the student body.

The student council meets once a month during the academic year.
