This will be followed at 4.15pm by seated refreshments in St Bernadette’s Hall, (the old school) and an open evening in St Colmcille’s NS, which will include the official opening and blessing of the new school jubilee garden at 5.30pm.

Children’s fun entertainment will be provided by Bouncemania on the day and their rates will apply.

There will be an icecream stand on site, run by the local artisan Rossmore Icecream, a memorabilia stand, run by the parents association, with an opportunity to order the school’s reunion book due out in November 2013.

Organisers hope to fill the book with peoples’ school memories and photos and also memories and photos of the June 9 gathering.

The school is looking forward to welcoming back past pupils and friends of the school on the day.
