The date for the past pupils reunion has been set for Saturday October 26thhere in the College. All past pupils from all eras are welcome to attend and we would love to have your company on the night. It will present a great opportunity to catch up with school friends from far and near with this email being circulated to over 300 registered alumni, from Canada, the UK, France, the US and many many more far flung locations.
You can help us in advance of the evening which will begin with mass in the college church followed by refreshments and some entertainment in the dining room. Further details of times will be circulated at a later date. We are planning to produce a booklet to mark the night and would be delighted to receive any copies of photographs you have relating to the college. We would also love some testimonials from past pupils to include in this booklet. This could take the form of some reflections and anecdotes of your time in the College or how your experience of GCC has influenced your current path, if at all. If you have any of these or wish to contribute please email either myself, Aidan or PJ before September 20th.
