ST. MOLAGA'S School has spent a quarter of a century shaping young minds in Balbriggan as it prepares to celebrate the start of its 25th academic year this autumn.
Celebrations of this remarkable anniversary began at SS Peter and Paul's Church last week where the entire school community gathered for a special mass. Through September and October, the children from 5th classes will work with glass and mosaic artist, Deirdre Rogers, on a large colourful mosaic which will be hung on the external wall of the school. The school's annual Arts Week will take place in October. This year's Arts Week will feature drummers, composers, weavers, authors, storytellers and the school are delighted to welcome back the Army No 1 Band for a performance that week.
On November 23 the school will celebrate its official 25th birthday with a fun day for the children during school time and a social evening for adults in the Bracken Court at night. The school hopes as many past pupils and staff will attend the evening two swap stories and memories of school life and catch up with old friends. There will be further events during the summer term and a committee of teachers and parents are busy organising these. In the meantime, the catalogue of 25 year events can be followed on facebook.com/molaga25.
