Presentation Secondary School, Castleisland celebrates its 90th anniversary tomorrow, Friday, November 24th 2017.

The celebrations will commence with a formal reception in the school in St. John’s Hall at 11am. for the staff, students and invited guests.

Stories and Memories

There, stories and memories of the past nine decades will be shared with all those in attendance. This will be followed by a tour of the school, where guests will take a trip down memory lane as they walk the corridors.

A timeline of the past ninety years will be visible along the corridor of the main St. Anne’s building, as well as detailed accounts from different subject departments which track the many curricular and extra-curricular developments which the school has undergone over the years.

Mass and Reception

The wider community will then be invited to join the celebrations with Mass in the Parish church at 7pm. followed by a reception in the River Island Hotel, Castleisland.

Light refreshments will be served as people visit an exhibition of memorabilia from the school.

“This full day of celebration marks a milestone of education offered by the Presentation Sisters throughout the past ninety years and we are delighted that the sisters will be at the heart of this significant celebration.

Sharing the Memories

“Presentation Secondary School wishes to thank all those who have contributed photos, stories and memorabilia to the exhibition and look forward to sharing the memories with the community on Friday,” said event spokesperson and teacher Pierce Dargan.
