Call to England and Beyond
Plans to open a convent and school in Ireland (Kilfinane, Co. Limerick) were well under way when Geneviève died on 25th September 1903.
In 1910 a teacher-training college was established in Selly Park. Staff and students were evacuated to Woodchester, Gloucester, at the outbreak of the Second World War. In 1946 the college moved to Rugby, Warwickshire and was known as St Paul’s College of Education, Newbold Revel. Unfortunately, due to government cut backs the college closed in July 1978.
