Well done to our Past Pupils

 

Jonathan Yates (class of 2011)

Jonathan graduated from Kilkenny in 2011. He went on to study in UCD, completing a degree in Sociology and Geography. During his time there he was an Ad Astra scholar and played golf internationally representing Ireland. He competed across the world picking up a number of high profile results including winning the prestigious ‘West of Ireland Open’ following in the footsteps of Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and Padraig Harrington to name a few. 

After representing Ireland at the highest levels he turned professional at the end of 2018. Since then he has been competing on both the Alps tour and European Challenge tour notching up many top high finishes, most notably getting into a playoff earlier this year in Egypt. This contributed to Jonathan finishing in 8th place on the Alps tour order of merit for 2020 guaranteeing him a full card for the Alps Tour in 2021 and also earning more starts for the Challenge tour. 

REMINDER

All parents and guardians are reminded to return the Screening Questionnaire before your child comes on campus on Sunday evenings (or if a day student) Monday morning.  The questionnaire is emailed to all parents and guardians on Friday afternoon.
