We are very proud of all our past pupils. Below are comments by just a few on their time in the ISK.
“I absolutely loved my time in the ISK. It’s a school which I can thank for showing me that hard work gets you to wherever you want to go. From academics to sports, I was always encouraged to go the extra mile and I’m forever grateful for the 5 years I spent there surrounded by positive, encouraging and inspiring people. Sport played a huge part in my time at the ISK and it not only taught me how to be a good team-player but it also taught me the value of dedication. I played football all throughout my school years (even when I was in the thick of the leaving cert) and so it definitely proved to me that you CAN do it all. I learned many life lessons at the ISK and I couldn’t recommend my experience there enough!” –Erica Fox (Past Pupil)
“I knew I was in the right place when I walked through the front door of the school and the first thing I saw was a beautiful Grand Piano
“I can remember days where I would finish School Football Training and go straight to practice for the School’s Concert, no need to warm up the voice then”
“It’s a place where your teacher will teach you Maths and an hour later will accompany you on the Piano as you sing
“The whole architecture of the school is designed like Shakespeare’s Globe, we like to call it ‘The Well’, and the halls are filled with poets & artists” – Muiris Crowley (Past Pupil )
The Intermediate School Killorglin gave me a great start in life by providing a well-rounded education that focused on personal development in parallel to academic achievement. My progression into political life was helped enormously by the experience I got in debating and public speaking at the ISK, just some of the broad range of skills on offer there. I am always impressed by the constant investment and development of facilities at the school whenever I visit.

“From my first day walking into the ISK until my last I encountered an environment that was varied, challenging and supportive, perfect for any young student to learn. My time spent in the school played a key role in shaping the person I am today and I can’t understate just how much of a positive influence my time in the school had on me from a sporting, academic and most importantly personal perspective. The craic was good as well!” Peter Crowley – Past Pupil
