St. Paul’s has a proud tradition of high academic standards and we count among our past pupils many who have achieved renown in the arts, science, business and legal professions.
St. Paul’s Past Pupils Union
The Past Pupils’ Union has grown from very small beginnings. The first meeting took place at St. Paul’s Convent on Wednesday March 7th 1984 with just two members – Sr. Mary Lyons and Ursula McDonnell (now deceased).
St. Paul’s Past Pupils’ Union is now over 30 years old with its own Constitution and is run by Sr Elizabeth Walsh and a hard-working Committee of 12 girls. The Facebook page: St Paul’s Past Pupils has now approximately 3000 members. This link is the main source of communication among the past pupils who are now spread all over the world.
Over the years many activities have been organized by the Past Pupils’ Committee. These include a Fashion Show, Table Quiz, Ceili, Colour Me Beautiful, Karaoke as well as many social gatherings where we just sit together, share old memories and renew acquaintances.
The PPU has donated money to the School for various projects as well as a Perpetual Trophy. This is presented each year at the Graduation Ceremony to the Leaving Certificate student who achieves the ‘Overall Merit Award’.
We remember all our past students with affection, many of whose photographs now grace our Memory Lane Corridor in school. We would be delighted if you consider adding your name to the list.
We encourage you to get involved in the Past Pupils’ Union by attending Reunions or by joining the Committee. All are welcome.
