Publication of the 15 year anniversary Brochure
20th September 2020
Dear Supporters of Clongowes Foundation
I trust that this letter finds you well and that you had an enjoyable summer. I write as Clongowes has opened for its two hundred and seventh academic year in circumstances that would have been unimaginable at the start of 2020.
The end of 2019 marked the 15 Year anniversary of the creation of the Clongowes Wood College Foundation. Those fifteen years have been an extraordinarily active period for the Foundation as it has worked together with the management and the board of the College to renew and expand the campus and, through the creation of the Alberto Hurtado Bursary Programme (AHP), to extend access to the unique educational experience that a seven-day boarding school can offer.
Of course, none of this could have happened without the support of you, our donors. So, as a way of showing our gratitude we have produced the accompanying brochure that sets out what you have helped accomplish, through the Foundation, over the past fifteen years.
Going forward the Foundation will continue to work to support Clongowes as it strives to school its pupils according to the best traditions and highest standards of Jesuit education with its focus on personal character and the contribution that each individual can make to society: the creation of what Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach S.J., the Society’s twenty-ninth Superior General, called ‘men of competence, conscience and compassionate commitment.’
