Sponsored School Sleep In

On Friday 22nd March, the Transition Year students of St. Brigid's Presentation Secondary School in Killarney will stage a Sponsored School Sleep In, in order raise awareness of homelessness in Kerry.

The proceeds of this Sleep In will be divided between St. Vincent De Paul and Novas, a homeless charity based in Tralee.

This year the Transition Year students are participating in the Young St. Vincent De Paul Programme and have decided to focus on the social justice issue of homelessness, which is so prevalent in our society.

The students felt that there was a great deal of information and media coverage about homelessness in big cities for example Dublin and Cork, but that people didn't realise how it affects individuals and families in Kerry also.

Following a talk from Ronan Doherty of Novas,  the students learned that last Christmas there were 104 adults and 57 children homeless in Kerry. These figures startled them into action.

It is hoped the Sponsored School Sleep In will raise much needed awareness and funds to help those in need.

There are two objectives (i) to raise awareness of issues with the internet, and (ii) to give students, parents and teachers actionable insights so students can safely benefit from the Internet. They will provide a customised presentation for parents based on the school’s Digital Trend Report which will have been generated during Zeeko’s meetings with students earlier in the day. The customised presentation will provide an objective up to date insight into the digital behaviours of our students. Zeeko’s qualified facilitators have backgrounds in psychology, media and technology. They have visited over 450 Primary and Secondary schools across Ireland. 


We would be delighted to welcome parents from all schools in the Killarney area on the night.
