Trocaire Award Winners

The Trocaire (pronounced Trocara) Award, seeks to recognise students who exhibit a willingness to work in the spirit of their House for other members of the Padua College community or for the broader community in general.  The word Trocaire is taken from the Irish and means compassion.  Nominations for these awards come from students directly to House Co‑ordinators.
