We have such great students at St Dominic's that we get really upset when they leave - so we decided that an Alumni Association was a great of keeping in touch with them.
Our list is handled by Future First, who deal with around 500 schools and colleges across the country. We ask our students to sign up in their second year so that we can email them our newsletters regularly and ask them back when we are hosting events such as the HE Day, the College Musical and Theatre Studies plays.
Our Alumni have also helped us in practical ways. We have held Careers Evenings in many subjects, such as History, Business, Economics, Pharmacy and Nursing and our past students have come back from University to tell our current cohort all about their courses and how they got there. They are a great help because it makes a real difference when they give good advice to our students about how hard you have to work in order to get to where you want to be.
We have over 1,000 students in our association but there is lots of room for more.
