November 21st is always an important day in Presentation Secondary School, Castleisland.

By: Katie O’Reilly

On that day the entire community celebrates the mission of Nano Nagle, founder of the Presentation sisters.

Activities Marked the Day

As this is the tercentenary year of Nano Nagle’s birth, a number of activities took place to mark it in the school.

The highlight of the week was when first year students welcomed the Presentation sisters to the school on Wednesday.

Celebrating School’s Vision

The students held a prayer service with the sisters and then displayed their research and projects on the life and work of Nano Nagle.

It was a wonderful celebration of the vision of the school, the strong tradition and values which are cherished by all associated with this school.

Address by Sr. Mary

The sisters really enjoyed the day. Sr. Mary Buckley addressed all gathered and spoke very movingly of how much the celebration meant to the sisters, the fond memories they have of their time in the school and thanked the girls for the warmth of their welcome.
