Celebrating 90 Years
in St.Columba's School, Iona Road,
On the 17th of October we celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the opening of our school.Our celebration began with a concelebrated mass in St. Columba's Church. The mass was concelebrated by Monsignor Dan O Connor, Fr. Jim Caffrey and Fr. Eoin McCrystal.Following the mass there was a reception in the school hall. The Parents' Association provided sustenance and we were entertained by the 6th class pupils who played recorders and danced the Three Tunes, Ms. Nolan's school choir sang and our beautiful ballerinas danced. A classroom in the old part of the school was set up as it would have been in the 1920's and there was a display of photographs. All agreed that it was a wonderful night and a great walk down memory lane. I hope you enjoy the photos of the night below.
This June (2015), our 6th class pupils interviewed some past pupils. We hope you enjoy our interviews and photographs from the past. We certainly have.
