The Faculty is made up by the following members of staff

Miss McDonald has enjoyed teaching English at St Columba's since 2004.
Mr Ryan has taught English at St Columba’s since 1997 - although some of you may know him better for his onstage performances in our school shows over the years (Anyone remember Fagan? or the Janitor through the years in our 50th Anniversary show?) Mr Ryan is our longest serving member of staff in the Faculty – he also teaches Media Studies alongside Mrs Kelsey.
Ms O’Brien has been an English Teacher at St Columba’s since 2010 – leaving us for a short time from 2012 to 2018, only to feel the pull of our school community and returning to us on a permanent basis in 2019.

Mrs Pierquin started out as Miss Alexander, joining the Faculty in 2008. Mrs Pierquin is also a former pupil making some of the more senior members of staff in school feel very old! However as a school community we are always proud to welcome our pupils back as a member of staff.
