Alumnae Testimonials

‘I studied at Alexandra College from 2005-2011. I am currently in my final year at the University of Birmingham studying a B.A. in English Literature. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Alex as a border and made some great friends along the way. Alex gave me so many opportunities that I would not have had anywhere else and I wouldn’t be who I am today if I had not been an Alex girl.’ – Indi Abrahams.

‘I enjoyed the freedom of boarding at Alex and made good friends. I entered the Bank of Ireland, College Green in August 1959, and then I was the youngest lady official in the bank.’ – Brenda Auchmuty

 

‘I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Alex particularly all the friends I made and my time on the hockey pitch! The facilities – particularly in relation to sport were amazing and fueled my interested in sport which I have carried with me since leaving the school.’ – Nicola Tate

 

‘I went to Trinity College after Alex where I qualified as a solicitor. I became the first woman partner in A&L Goodbody in 1980, which I remained for the next 15 years. I left there to become the first woman Executive Director and General Counsel in The Irish Times – a position I held for 8 years when I left to establish my own firm Erwin Mediation Services. In May 2013 I became 50% owner and Executive Chairperson of Ganly Walters estate agency and this with my mediation practice keeps me out of mischief.’ – Karen Erwin

 

‘I graduated from Alex at 18 after being in Alex since the age of 4! I have very happy memories from my time in the Junior School. It’s only since leaving school that I appreciate how the Alex philosophy helped me to be a confident young woman.’ – Rachel Doak Howe

 

‘Some of my dearest friends are the girls that I met in Alex. My six years provided me with the opportunity to find myself and my sense of independence. The strong ethos of diversity in all areas of education including sport, music and drama gave me the opportunity to invest myself within society and to reap the rewards of encouragement and success.’ – Georgina Fitzgerald

 

‘In Alex, it is the relationships between the teachers and the pupils that gets everyone through at the end of the day. I had some brilliant teachers in Alex who I will be thankful for always. I also had great girlfriends. Some of those relationships have solidified even more so in post school years.’ – Elaine Lavery
