Kilkenny College has a policy of allowing students to undertake additional work experience provided the experience is vital to their future career interest and cannot be obtained during the official two weeks or during holiday time.

If your child has an opportunity to undertake such a placement and you consider it worthwhile having taken into account the loss of school time etc you will need to fill in an additional form to be signed by you and your child. This is NECESSARY in order for the student to be covered by school insurance. Additional Work Experience Form to be obtained by request
