Our “Give Something Back” Initiative

To any:

  • former parent of a former student
  • former student of the school
  • or any person, male or female,

who feel thankful in some way for what the College’s rugby ethos and experience did for them, we are asking you for a gentle €20 per month financial contribution back.

If you feel you, or someone you know and value, has brought that benefit to other areas of your life, we are asking you to sign up for an ongoing €20 per month contribution that the Cistercian College Rugby Support group will use to help us meet those unexpected and unbudgeted-for expenses that arise in a school season or even off season.

We have the facility set up on a secure www.gocardless.com platform. You can cancel it at any time, but we hope you never do.


This is a monthly contribution that we will collect by direct debit on the 5th of every month, and we will ensure that you are kept abreast of the ever-positive news from Cistercian College.
