Celebrating 30 Years of the Social Diversity Programme

Celebrating 30 Years of the Social Diversity Programme

Reception held 15th October

A very special reception was held on Monday, 15th October to celebrate thirty years of the Social Diversity Programme (SDP) at Belvedere College S.J. The SDP, formerly known as the Social Integration Scheme, has changed the lives of over 250 boys since 1988. Attendees at the reception included supporters, donors and former SDP students.

We were especially honoured to welcome back Fr. John Dardis S.J. to the College for this special occasion. Fr. Dardis S.J, as you may know, is OB 1974, a former Provincial of the Jesuit order in Ireland, former President of the Conference of European Provincials, and in 2016 was elected as one of four Assistants Ad Providentiam - special assistants who work closely with the Fr. General. Other speakers of the night included Fr. Leonard Moloney S.J., Jarlath Bolger (OB 2003) and Steven Collins (OB 2018). We were also delighted to have Loosehorse, the documentary film company, produce a short documentary clip that was shared with guests on the evening.

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped us to celebrate this incredible programme.
