European Heritage Open Day - Fri 8 Sep 18

"The Men Behind The Glass" Was On Public Display For The First Time During The European Heritage Open Day On Saturday 8 September 2018.
On Saturday morning the 8th of September 2018, the College was open as part of The European Heritage Open Day. During the morning over 300 people visited the school including many OCs, local residents, current and former parents.

A Level History students did the College proud as they hosted numerous tours for the visitors, as did Julian Robertson (6475).

Many visitors sought further information on their relatives who had attended the College and some brought new information.
Such was the case as a great niece of Robert Dilworth (1181) revealed that Robert had been killed in action on 20th December 1916 whilst taking part in a raid.  
 
Tommy Fulton brought in the Army Discharge Papers of his Grand Father, Lance Corporal Milliken in the MG Corps, that had been signed by C S Lewis (1141).
 
A relative of Robert Thompson (503) brought in his Military Cross.

The school wishes to thank Julian Robertson and all the Tour Guides, the Heritage Lottery Fund (NI), PRONI and to all the exhibitors: History Hub Ulster, The Somme Association & Somme Museum, Military History Association of Ireland, North Down Museum, Living Legacies 1914-1918, Turas, the College CCF and also to Kilkenny College.
