PRINCIPAL'S WELCOME

I would like to welcome you to the Piper’s Hill College website and hope you find the information you require within.

The vibrancy and variety contained in the website reflects a school comfortable with change emphasising an inclusive ethos and welcome to all regardless of ability, creed or race.

Our magnificent facilities here, which include four fully equipped science laboratories, a language laboratory, state-of-the-art construction and engineering rooms as well as a sports hall and floodlit all weather pitches, ensures that your son/daughter will be perfectly well positioned to achieve his/her full potential in Piper’s Hill College.

Finally, the security of an out-of-town school setting combined with a fully qualified, committed and dynamic teaching staff will build on the strengths and talents that your son/daughter will bring to the school.

I look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership between school and home based on the cornerstones of respect and achievement.

Is Mise Le Meas,

Colm O’Connor

Farewell to Mr Mac Donncha

Feilim And Ger Retirement Pics 018

Former and present colleagues gathered at the Osprey Hotel Naas on January 22 to mark the occasion and to celebrate the retirement of Mr Feilim Mac Donncha from his position in Piper’s Hill College. Mr Mac Donncha began his teaching career with Co Kildare Vocational Educational Committee on September 1982 being appointed to their Naas school. Since then he has made a very valuable contribution as an Irish and Geography teacher and also as Director of Adult Education for the school. It is perhaps for his commitment and dedication to the Irish language that Mr Mac Donncha will be most remembered by us here in Piper’s Hill College. He was responsible for organising numerous trips to the Gaeltacht and other extracurricular activities to promote the Irish language among students throughout the years. He took every opportunity to communicate “as Gaeilge” with both his students and colleagues alike whether in the classroom or the staffroom. He is associated with many special moments in the school life for both colleagues and students. His recitation at the school’s annual Christmas Talent Show being one of the most notable. This impromptu delivery was eagerly anticipated by everyone and became one of the highlights of this end of term event. On behalf of the management , staff and students  here at Piper’s Hill College we wish  to thank Mr Mac Donncha for his service and  wish him all the very best for the coming years.
