March 2010 The Class of 1978 has set up a group on Facebook (Ashton Class of 1978 – Facebook Link) and invites all classmates to join the group, add photos, and reconnect with old friends.

February 2009 Andrea   Barnett (nee Underwood) attended Rochelle and later Ashton until 1975.  Andrea is keen to catch up with anyone from the group. She is  living in Sydney, Australia, and loving it. She emigrated in 1981 to Brisbane.

November 2008 Tiernan Humphrys would like   to hear from anyone who left in 1992, especially those who boarded in   Rochelle.

September 2008 Deirdre van Tilborg (Wijnstekers) left Ashton in 1984 and is wondering if there are any others interested in reuniting. She visits Ireland regularly.

Older messages Murray Curran, presently in   Australia suggests that a 20 year reunion for the class of 86 would be great and   suggests around Christmas. Any volunteers to organise this event??
Rita   O’Leary-Beckom would like to make contact with Robert Averies.
Leena   Thavisin (First year 1994-95) and now in Australia would like to make contact   with Jesse Winchester, Billie Browne & Cathleen Canavan – contact the school   for her e-mail address.

Terence Loane   (in Ashton from 1978-1980 and now living in Belfast) has released his first   feature film “Mickybo & Me” – congratulations to Terry who both wrote &   directed the film. Rachel Kinney (now Wheeler and living in Florida) is   asking if there are any plans for a reunion for the class of ’85 and John Lehane   (still in Ireland) is suggesting a 20 year reunion for the class of ’86 – any   interest and offers to become involved in helping with the organisation?  Lists   of names are available.           I
