Athy College is deeply saddened by the tragic loss of one of our recent past pupils Kasey McConville. She was a spirited and gifted young lady whose loss is felt by students and staff of the college . Our deepest sympathies to Martin, Lizzie, Kerri and Kealan and the extended families. May she sleep in peace.
Athy College is very proud of our choir "Voices" which performed for the Celebration of Volunteering at the Clanard Court Hotel. Well done to Miss Caesar and Mr O'Donnell and the singers. "Voices" are becoming an amazing group. Many thanks to Ryan Hennessy who took the time to take a pic with some of the choir members at the event.

Delighted to get to congratulate past pupil Seamus Malone on his animation achievements on Thur night. Athy is famous pioneers like Shakeleton who opened new frontiers. In a different field we have now recognised another local hero who travelled the path less taken and followed his dream in the animation world. “Watership Down”, “Shaun the Sheep”, “Arthur Christmas””, Chicken Run”, “Wallace and Gromit” are among the animations he worked on and Emmys, Oscars and Golden Globes are among the awards.
Athy College is proud of it’s celebrated son not just because of the awards or the fame but because he is one talented, humble and genuinely nice gentleman. Proud of your achievement, Seamus, but equally proud of the individual. An inspiration and role model to our students.
Thanks again to another past pupil, Colm Walsh, for bringing this idea to fruition and to our "resident" choral group Beautiful Noise for their rendition of Shaun the Sheep!
This academic year Athy College celebrates 80 years of delivering education in Athy. Over those years we have provided second level education, apprentice and secretarial, adult evening and post leaving certificate courses. A former teacher Stephen Cullinane was founder of Macra na Feirme and many staff have been pioneers in technological, industrial and educational change at national level.
Athy College is about to embark on its second major building programme inside a decade. Plans for the new extension,which will bring capacity to 1000, are completed and about to go to construction
We will be celebrating our involvement in education and our community over the coming months.
To launch our 80th year we will be celebrating student achievement by joining the Made of Athy project to unveil a plaque to past student Séamus Malone who has won acclaim internationally for his extraordinary animation work.
Watch this space for more of our events for our 80th!
Before you throw out that old laptop you can convert it to a Chromebook which will operate at a much faster speed and is more than adequate for most student use. Visit neverware.com and download the Cloud Ready programme onto a memory stick and load it onto your old laptop. Hey Presto! you have a pretty good Chromebook. There are instructions on the Neverware website on how to do it. So think of the environment and give your old laptop a second chance of life before you dump it
