The performance of the Class of 2018 was outstanding with excellent results achieved at every level.

“A History of Ashton School” by Alicia St Leger

Our long-awaited history book has been published.

The book – compiled over decades – is the work of art of author Dr Alicia St Leger.  Alicia is a past-pupil who began her second-level education in Rochelle School.  There was no limit to her dedication to accurately record the history of the school and the other schools which came together when Ashton was formed – Rochelle School and Cork Grammar School. Alicia is always careful to point out that Cork Grammar School was also an amalgamation of two schools when it joined with Cork High School.

buynowThe book and memorabilia it contains makes very interesting reading for anyone with a connection with the school. No doubt it will make an ideal Christmas gift for all the family.

The book is also available from Liam Ruiséal and Welch Sports.

Welcome from the Principal
