  1. I’m Kevin Roche and I was a 1994/95 student at Plater College. At that time I was a candidate for the priesthood with the RC Diocese of Plymouth. Following on from Plater I took up the post of Pastoral Assistant in the parish of Eastbourne. Fourteen months later I decided that religion wasn’t for me and I walked away from it and have not returned.
    I remain grateful to the church for the great education that it provided me with. School had been one of the things that I had failed at as a child.
    After leaving the church I acquired work with Plymouth City Council as a Housing Officer. I remained in that post until 2010 when I retired.
    I wasn’t in the Plater football squad, playing football has never been my subject.
    This year (2019) I will have achieved 38 consecutive years of of sobriety. When I attended my first AA meeting (25 – 05 – 81) a guy there said to me: “The life that you have been living doesn’t have to be the life that you continue to live when you leave here this evening”. He was absolutely right. That was the message that I had longed to hear.
    I certainly remember the guys who are on this forum. I give them all my very best wishes

  2. Hello all. I am Rory. I took the legal diploma 1994 / 95. I was the best footballer that ever played for Plater College. Oh yes, and an arrogant loudmouth. I never realised what a rich experience Plater was until long after I left. With hindsight I would have made much more of it than I did but I bet there are many who would say the same. It would be great to hear from anyone who was at Plater for the Unforgettable ’94/95 academic epiphany! (No sneaking off to the “library”!)
