Sr. Madeleine Ryan R.I.P.
We are deeply saddened and shocked to report the passing of Sr. Madeleine Ryan, Chairperson of our Board of Management. Sr. Madeleine gave outstanding service to our school - as a Board member and as Chairperson, Board of Management. Her loss to her mother and her extended family and to her religious congregation is incalculable. Our loss as a school is immeasurable. Sr. Madeleine was wise and insightful in her leadership of the Board of Management. Above all else, she was warm hearted and deeply committed to ensuring that students and staff were looked after, challenged and supported. May she Rest In Peace and May Her Reward Be Great in Heaven.
