The College community of staff, students, parents and monks were devastated this morning on hearing of the sudden death of our much loved colleague and friend Gary Halpin RIP.
Since Gary joined our College as Head of Boarding he brought tremendous energy to his work. He loved the College. He had a formidable presence, a great sense of humour and above all he was an extremely humble man.
Although Gary had a prestigious rugby career he never boasted about it. We all knew Gary as a colleague who worked so well with every staff member and student.
Gary’s most important role in life was that of a husband, father and brother. This morning we will all keep in our thoughts and prayers Gary’s wife Carol, his children and his family.
May his gentle soul rest in peace.
