Colm Hickey

Colm Hickey, a volunteer Director of Education at JP2F4S, is also the organisation’s first Co-ordinator of Volunteers. He spent 30 years in Catholic education including the Headship of a Specialist Sports College so he has a deep interest in the role that sport can play not only in the physical  development of young people, but also in their academic progress and spiritual formation.  Colm is also the author of numerous articles on the history of athleticism in schools. His role as Director of Education is to embed the ethos and philosophy of John Paul 2 Foundation into Catholic institutions throughout the country.
As the Co-ordinator of Volunteers he will be working with schools, clubs and parishes to train to run school, club and parish sporting activities that are  community based, sustainable and in keeping with the vision, values, aims and objectives of the Foundation.
