Past Pupils Newsletters

A lot is happening: we continue to be a vibrant secondary school which is at the heart of all that we do here, its pupils the standard-bearers today for the great tradition and history of the College.

Since the first days of our existence, in 1782, we have worked to move people on. The College exists precisely for the function of educating people to the highest standards possible, in accordance with the values of the Gospel, so as to prepare them to head out into the world: their families, their parishes, their workplaces. We do this so that when they are there they are in a position, hopefully partially as a result of their time here, to achieve all that is possible for them and for those they love Conscious of this we are hoping to try to establish a greater network of our past pupils – something as simple as a list of those who might like, two or three times a year, to receive an email updating them on what is going on in St Kieran’s College.

We still wonder: How are the College teams getting on? What is happening there now? What do today’s students think of the place? How are those who left here getting on? Are there any past pupils living near me? Where are my classmates and what are they doing now?

It is our exports, therefore, our past pupils, that make us most proud. It is wonderful, then, when a former student comes back to the College, alone or with family, to share memories of time spent here. It is great to hear what so many have done and achieved in the years since they left the Glass Hall behind. It is, after all, for them and the fulfilment of their possibilities that we exist.

So get in touch with us and keep your St Kieran’s connection alive – subscribe to the St Kieran’s College Past Pupils eNewsletter or contact St Kieran’s College at 056-7721086.
