St. Paul’s Community College would like to welcome back all students and staff for the new academic year. Evening study commences this week. A special welcome to all our new first year students and visiting international students. A sad farewell too to staff who have retired Mr Mullen, Ms Germani and Ms Dunne and a special welcome to all our new bright and young staff members. Congratulations to Mr John Gallagher on his recent appointment as Principal in Cashel Community School.
Well done to David Galvin who swam the length of the Suir River from source to sea in June. In doing so Mr Galvin raised much needed funds for our school’s ASD Classroom. Well done to Mr Galvin and all involved including Mr O’Grady. Both are pictured.
The Brick by Brick Cyclathon in aid of the Ballybeg Restoration Fund following the damage caused by recent vandalism was a great success. Held in St John Roberts Square on Thursday 7th May from 10am until 5pm even the weather was kind as students, staff and community members managed to cycle the distance from Malin Head to Mizen Head on the day. Well done to all.
A group of our students accompanied by Ms woods and Principal Noreen Reilly visited Bausch and Lomb recently. They were afforded a warm reception by Maurice Kelly, Director (pictured), and thoroughly enjoyed their visit getting a tour of the plant and a lovely lunch in the Bausch and Lomb canteen. St Paul’s looks forward to partnering with B&L and more visits are planned. Mr kelly is the new Chairperson on St. Paul’s CC Parents Council and staff and students wish the new Parents Council well in their new endeavours.
