|The committee of the PPU wishes to extend its congratulations and warmest good wishes for the
future to outgoing Principal, Mrs Kathleen Feeney, on the occasion of her retirement. We especially want to thank
Mrs Feeney for her help, encouragement and support in getting the Past Pupils Union off the ground. Such a
development was a long time in coming but is certainly a legacy of which Kathleen may be proud.
The Committee also warmly welcomes new Principal, Ms Mary Keane, to Christ King. We congratulate her on her
appointment and wish her every success in her new position. We hope that she will be as happy at Christ King as
we have been as pupils there.

During the month of May, the committee organised two competitions in the school in an effort to spread the word
about our founding.
Niamh Rigby, Leaving Cert, was the winner of a Logo Competition and her prize, a digital camera, was kindly
sponsored by O’Leary’s Camera World, Oliver Plunkett St.
Georgina Cantwell, Second year, won the second competition by submitting the highest number of entries in the
search for past pupils names and details. Georgina’s prize is a cheque for 50 euro. The PPU wishes to congratulate
both girls and thanks all who entered the competitions.
