Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wish to advise you of my decision to retire as Principal of Piper’s Hill College during this coming Summer.

I have spent fifteen wonderful years as Principal here in the community of Naas and this year marks my tenth year as the Principal of Piper’s Hill College. I look back with pride on the many talented and successful young men and women who have passed through St Patrick’s Community College and Piper’s Hill College and I know they contributed positively to society. The highly committed and inclusive staff in Piper’s Hill College has nurtured many success stories over the years and I’m privileged to be associated with such a hard-working and dedicated staff.

Finally, to you as parents/guardians thank you for your loyal support over the years and for trusting me as Principal to ensure that your son/daughter achieved to the very best of their ability.

Finally, I’m confident that the incoming Principal can rely on your continued support and good wishes in the years ahead.

Lea dea-ghui,
Colm O’Connor



I would like to welcome you to the Piper’s Hill College website and hope you find the information you require within. 

The vibrancy and variety contained in the website reflects a school comfortable with change emphasising an inclusive ethos and welcome to all regardless of ability, creed or race.

Our magnificent facilities here, which include four fully equipped science laboratories, a language laboratory, state-of-the-art construction and engineering rooms as well as a sports hall and floodlit all weather pitches, ensures that your son/daughter will be perfectly well positioned to achieve his/her full potential in Piper’s Hill College.

Finally, the security of an out-of-town school setting combined with a fully qualified, committed and dynamic teaching staff will build on the strengths and talents that your son/daughter will bring to the school.

I look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership between school and home based on the cornerstones of respect and achievement. 

Is Mise Le Meas, Colm O’Connor
