Past Pupils

Since opening its doors in 1984 over 2,000 pupils have graduated from Corpus Christi Primary School. All of our past pupils have attended post-primary education and a number have gone on to Third Level Education and our brightest have or are completing Masters or PhD studies much to the delight of their proud and committed parents. We have always enjoyed the support of parents in all aspects of school life. Many of our past pupils are the parents of our present students, which is testament to their appreciation of the role Corpus Christi Primary School has played in their lives. We congratulate all of our past pupils on their successes in life and wish them the very best in the future.

Corpus Christi Primary School acted as a huge platform for where I am today. The school gave me the chance to explore all aspects of learning. The education provided by the teachers in Corpus Christi Primary School is wide ranging and holistic. I was encouraged by my teachers to participate in a local summer camp. Because of my teachers’ encouragement, I got the opportunity to follow my passion and participate in tennis at a high club and inter-provincial level. I am now a qualifed tennis coach for parks tennis and represent Limerick Lawn Tennis Club. Corpus Christi gave me the fundamental academic skills which were a huge positive factor in reaching third level. I am studying Psychology and Sociology at the University of Limerick and I hope to commence a PhD in ‘Educational Psychology’ in 2012. The school gave me the opportunity, confdence and determination to pursue anything I desire! I would like to thank all the staff and teachers at Corpus Christi Primary School for where I am today. - James Crowe.

My name is Samantha Kennedy. I’m 28 years of age and from the local area of Moyross. I attended Corpus Christi Primary School from the age of 4 to 13. While I was there, I thoroughly enjoyed my school life. I made fantastic friends and had a good relationship with the teachers. In Corpus Christi, I learned that school isn’t always just about hard work, it can be fun too. I learned that when things get tough, teachers are always there to guide you and help you through it. I had an opportunity to get involved in a number of sports like basketball, hurling and soccer. I was also a member of the school choir and was lucky to be involved in the recording of a tape of our own music. As a result of my positive experience in Corpus Christi, I decided to trust in them and sent both my children there for their education. Luckily, my daughter is already having a similar experience to me and more. I’m also really looking forward to my son starting there next year - Samantha Kennedy.

You could say that I’ve been attending Corpus Christi Primary School in Moyross for the past 27 years. Not only did I have the pleasure of attending the school, now I am an employee. My experience as a pupil was the best, attending a school with such a caring environment. It was everything I could have asked for and more. My education here encouraged me to do well in secondary school and third level education where I studied Special Needs Education & Child Physiology. When I finished college an opportunity came up for me to work in my old primary school and I am still here nearly ten years later. Today, the school still has a caring environment and staff. The teachers encourage all pupils to do their best to succeed.  - Orla Flanagan.

My name is Keith Earls. I am 23 years old, a Munster and an Irish rugby player. I grew up in Moyross and I am very proud of where I come from. I loved my time in Corpus Christi school and have good memories of the time I spent there. I made good friends and the teachers worked hard and always had time for you. I enjoy going back to visit the school and meet the children. What I tell them is;  ‘Follow that dream, work hard, play hard. Always believe in yourself. Your dreams can come true’. - Keith Earls.

I graduated from Corpus Christi Primary School in 2000. I have many happy memories from my time in this school, including learning to play Irish traditional music on the tin-whistle and fiddle, and playing soccer on the beach in Kilkee as part of my Second Class school tour. I loved Art, and I was very happy when I had a paint brush in my hand. As I enjoyed working with numbers, my favourite subject was Maths. I made some great friends in Corpus Christi, many of whom became friends for life. After Secondary School, I moved to Dublin to study Radiography in UCD, and I now work as a Radiographer in Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin.”  - Adrienne Schofeld.
