I think the ease at which relationships are built is where the College excels. Being around a lot of like-minded people means there is always someone to talk to.
The community St. Colman's creates is second to none and after being here for seven years I would not want to spend those seven years anywhere else. The teachers are a great addition as they make you feel so at home, this on top of the flawless pastoral care St Colman's one of the best communities I've ever been a part of.
Going through the years greatly improves the experience as you continue to make more friends and become more friendly with the teachers, being a part of extracurricular activities improves this bond even further,
In team and solo activities you build a bond with your coach or mentor and your peers which will last a lifetime. Being here seven years has really taught me about giving everything.
The fact that you can come here with other 11 years and thrown right in with no friends apart from the ones you came with from primary school is my greatest take away from the college. If someone told me back when I was that small 11 year old child that I would be cemented to the history of the school I wouldn't have believed it. It is something I will carry proudly for the rest of my life.
Winning trophies and awards is not what it's about, the sense of family is a feeling that winning a trophy cannot compete with. The teachers are not only friendly and dedicated, they are also very hard working, and great at what they do. I don't think I could have asked for a better teaching team that for the last 6 1/2 years. They have done everything in their power to help each and every student maximise their potential and get the grades they deserve.Back
