This year we are once again holding the Annual Reunion Dinner in October, and the great news is that we are returning to the Gresham as the major refurbishment job is now complete.

Membership of OCSPPU

APPEAL FOR PAYMENT OF A MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION

YOU CAN BECOME A MEMBER OF OCS PPU FOR AS LITTLE AS €20 PER YEAR

 

The O’Connell Schools’ Past Pupils’ Union (OCS PPU) is 80 years in existence. One of the principal aims of the Union is to financially support the school through the establishment of a Benevolent Fund.

The funds we raise through the Annual Mass, the Annual Dinner and through membership subscriptions from existing Members go to help disadvantaged pupils who attend the school. The Benevolent Fund is administered by our school Principal, Gerry Duffy.

The assistance given by the PPU is used to help pay for

  • School uniforms and books
  • Exam fees
  • The breakfast club
  • Annual Christmas hampers

Apart from assisting the students, membership of the PPU also provides a great social opportunity of meeting old school pals and renewing friendships.

Subscriptions have dropped to less than €500 per annum, with only 67 past pupils currently making an annual contribution. To ensure the survival of the PPU we need to see a substantial increase in the number of people willing to pay a small yearly contribution – €20 (More if you wish).

We absolutely appreciate everyone’s support over the years, but we would really like to increase our contribution to the school as well as providing additional social opportunities for past pupils to stay in contact and meet.

A very special thanks to those of you already paying an annual subscription, but could we ask you please to update your standing order to increase your contribution.

To everyone else, we would be most appreciative if you could make the yearly contribution by filling out the attached Standing Order form or by setting up a standing order online using the PPU account information on the attached form.

Sincere thanks

Tony Connellan

President OCSPPU
