Fellow Past Pupils,
I am delighted and honoured to take up the role as Union President for 2023/24 and would especially like to thank the members for placing their trust in me.
I would like to thank all my predecessors for their excellent stewardship of the Union since its incorporation in 1984, particularly those I have worked with – Stephen Taylor, Maurice Murphy, Alan Gough and especially our outgoing president, Philip Smith.
The Union offers past pupils a great way to stay connected after school. The importance of staying connected, helping each other and remembering shared experiences cannot be underestimated. The wonderful Tom McCormack (Class of 1979) continues to keep us connected through the social media channels which we greatly appreciate. Furthermore, I would like to thank my fellow Committee members for their ongoing support.
As we look to the year ahead our focus is to continue to deliver great events, to foster and fuel the strong relationship with the current staff and pupils and to champion our benevolent fund, The Flaming Sword, who tirelessly work to help past pupils faced
with all kinds of difficulties, in the true spirit of St. Michaels.
I would be delighted to hear from you with any suggestions on how we can improve the Union – email@example.com
Finally, I am very pleased that Jonathan Dunphy has agreed to accept the position of Vice President of the Union, and I very much look forward to working with him and with the whole Committee and the wider Past Pupil community in the year ahead.
Patrick McMahon (Class of 1992)
