Venerable Mary Ward, our foundress’ vision was that ’women in time to come will do much’ and in that spirit we recently welcomed back past pupil, Rachel Collier who co-founded Young Social Innovators with Sr. Stan in 2001. Rachel, a Communications graduate, has worked with Sr. Stan for years and, with her, established Focus Point in 1985. Rachel gave an inspirational talk to 5th year students.
