Principal Ferdi McDermott will be welcoming anyone interested in the work of Chavagnes International College (independent boarding school for boys and university-college specialising in the Liberal Arts) for an information event at the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, 63 Merrion Square, Dublin, from 5.30pm onwards on Saturday 10th March, 2018. Drinks and light refreshments will be served.
The RSAI’s house in Merrion Square is the only fully intact Georgian town house and garden in Dublin and this event is a great opportunity to enjoy a beautiful piece of Georgian Dublin from within.
The event celebrates the launch of our new 2-year intensive Liberal Arts degree, beginning in September 2018, so will be of particular interest to prospective Liberal Arts students, but famlies with young sons who are interested in our school are also welcome.
At 7pm there will be a formal presentation “Gile ne gile: saints and scholars for tomorrow’s Europe” given by the Principal, Ferdi McDermott, tracing Ireland’s role in the development of European civilisation and suggesting that the time is right for her to rediscover her unique vocation now that Europe stands at a crossroads. The talk will also give details of the new Liberal Arts programme.
Following the presentation there will be further opportunity to talk informally and socialise over drinks. The event is scheduled to end at around 8.30pm, and those keen to continue discussions will likely reconvene at an eatery nearby.
Please note: all welcome, but please make sure to arrive before 7pm. Also, we ask you to confirm your attendance in advance either here on Facebook, or via the link above. There is no charge for entry, but donations are welcome.
If you can come and be with us on 10th March, please let us know in advance
