President's Message

Dear fellow past pupils,

I am honoured to be taking up the role as St Mary’s College Past Pupils Union President for the academic year 2023/2024.

I would like to thank the outgoing President, Padraig Keogan for his hard work and dedication during his tenure as president particularly as we emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic and were again one again to hold some events which could not previously have taken place.

I am delighted that Norman Hughes (Class of 1986) has been elected as Vice-President and I look forward to working closely with Norman and the rest of the Committee over the year.

As set out in the Union Constitution, one of the aims of the Union is to stimulate friendship and co-operation among past pupils. This year, I hope to emphasise the importance of staying connected with your classmates, and the importance of reconnecting with classmates. This could be done at our upcoming marquee events such as the Annual Dinner on 17 November 2023, the Business Lunch in early 2024, or the Golf Day in May 2024, or it may very well be in a more informal setting such as a Year Group get together. The key message is that now is a good time to reconnect with your Year Group.

We as a committee will be working on new initiatives which will assist us in bringing Past Pupils closer, and we will communicate these to you in the months ahead.

Fidelitas in Arduis

Brian Hammond (Class of 2007)

President 2023-2024
