The St. Columba’s College Foundation was officially launched on Friday, September 23rd 2022 at an event in Whispering House. The Foundation is the new body, with a broad mission to engage the wider Columban community and help secure the future of the College. To do so, they aim to make the College more accessible, more sustainable, to improve its teaching & learning facilities and enhance its campus.
The Foundation’s mission is founded on four distinct but interlinked pillars:
Sustainability: the desire to transform our energy usage and make the College far more environmentally focused.
Classrooms: there is a need for some new classroom development and this will be able to take place as a direct result of our mission to become more sustainable and the subsequent reattribution of space in the middle of the College.
Bursaries: these will broaden access to the College for families who cannot currently afford to send their children here.
Campus enhancement: we need to enhance the entrance and the approach to the College, as well as upgrade certain areas within the campus.
