Ventured Spring 2023 – Issue 34.pdf

Vale Dermot Monahan MCHS Principal 1985 – 1991

Described as a kind man with good heart. Dermot is remembered fondly as very quiet and spending a lot of time in his office – so much so that he was known as “The Grey Ghost”. However, he was always available to discuss any problems that the staff might have. He was the son of Irish/Americans. His mother would call the school asking to speak with Diarmid and announce that she was his “mudder”.

The stickers are also available at the General Office of the School. Thank you to Julia at Mordialloc College for all her coordination.

Our heartfelt thanks to Heather Scott, Denver and the Team at Mordialloc Men’s Shed.
