It was fitting that Peter Lydon, probably one of the best kickers to play SCT rugby for Kilkenny College, was in attendance as a special guest today as our Junior and Senior rugby players battled it out in their place kicking competitions organised by Mr. Ashmore. Some of the kicking on display was hugely impressive and we had two surprising winners in each category.
The conclusion of the 2015-16 school year marks the retirement from the College staff of two outstanding senior teachers: Mrs. Sandra Morrow and Mr. David Milne. Both Mrs. Morrow and Mr. Milne represent the highest standards of professionalism in their careers as teachers at Kilkenny College. They have both overseen the development and growth of their respective departments of French and Music. They have both demonstrated at all times a desire to support learning for their students and shown great personal attention and care for everyone for whom they have had professional responsibility.
Mrs. Morrow and Mr. Milne have transmitted to generations of students a love and understanding of French and Music. It is evident that many of their former students have carried their learning and love of French or Music forward into their adult lives. Mrs. Morrow and Mr. Milne both stand as role models for the positive impact teachers can have on the lives of their students. The Boards, Parents Association, colleagues and students of the College thank them both for their enormous contributions to the life and development of Kilkenny College during their careers here. Both are wished every success as they move forward into new opportunities and phases of their lives. The leave with a deep expression of respect, gratitude and affection for them both from the entire community of Kilkenny College.
