Drumkeeran NS Celebrates

- 40th Anniversary of the School -



Fr  Alwill welcomes everybody to the Mass of Thanksgiving


A Mass of Thanksgiving

was the central feature of celebrations to mark

the 40th Anniversary of the school’s opening.


The pupils and staff of the school

Were joined by parents, by past-pupils and

by former members of staff.


The pupils sang the hymns for the Mass,

Read the readings and the Prayer of the Faithful

And brought various gifts to the altar.


After the Mass the pupils of the various classes
sang songs for the visitors and guests,
played music and read poetry.

Guests were then treated to light refreshments
and were given an opportunity
to look through old roll-books
and photographs.

It was an enjoyable and pleasant occasion for all.

The celebration was attended by a large number of people,
including many past-pupils of the school



The school choir sings the opening hymn.



Among the gifts brought to the altar was the original roll-book of the school.


Among the former members of staff attending the occasion
were Mrs Eileen Kelly, second from the right,
Mrs Mary Dolan, left of the second row,
and Mairin O’Keeffe, behind Mrs Dolan.

We also see Mrs Josephine White, Chairperson of the Board of Management.
