St Gerard's School wishes to maintain strong links with our alumni (former pupils) and help towards nurturing a cohesive network of people linked to the School, and to each other. Whether you have only just left us or St Gerard's is a distant memory, we hope that this website will help to keep you informed and involved with us and your fellow alumni.  This website is updated regularly, so please visit again to see what new developments are in store for St Gerard's.

Centenary Celebrations

During 2017, St Gerard's will be celebrating our centenary.  Established in 1915, the possibility of the school's current site on Ffriddoedd Road occurred in 1917.  Throughout this time many pupils have passed through the doors.  If you are interested in further information about our centenary events or would like to be on the mailing list for any events please get in touch.
 

An update about the centenary celebration

Preparations are moving ahead at a pace now as the date (July 1st) draws near and we are daily receiving requests for tickets from different generations of former students, which is really exciting. So if you want to join us to celebrate this unique landmark in the school’s history, please get in touch on friends@st-gerards.org. The more the merrier!

The school will be open to visitors on the afternoon of July 1st between 2pm and 5 pm before the evening event which is being held at Neuadd Reichel.  This will be a buffet and an auction of gifts and promises.  Tickets are £25 per person, £20 to former students who are still students. 

It has been really heart-warming to hear from ex- pupils how fond their memories are of their time here and to see the degree of interest in the centenary evening event from different generations, so we are quietly confident that it will be well-attended, as people sign up.

Of course, there is huge interest in the buildings and how they may have changed and equally in the teachers who have taught at various times. Members of staff both current and past will also be there..

From this unique event we are hoping to renew and maintain, contact with our wider family, creating an association of friends who may want to gather together on future occasions, support the school in different ways such as offering careers advice, work- experience opportunities etc. Those we have educated with such commitment are an untapped resource in this respect.

Gift Aid

If anyone wishes to make a donation to the school and is a taxpayer, we are now registered for gift aid contributions. Please contact us for further information

Auction of promises

If anyone wishes to make a promise or provide a gift for the evening please get in touch 

 

Let's make the most of this unique moment in the school's history.
