The original building was opened on 16th August 1966 with an official opening on the 21st November 1966 by the Very Rev. Cannon Battel and the Right Reverend Francis Thomson, Bishop of Motherwell.
As a school we will be celebrating this in a number of ways in June (so the current P7s can be included) and in August. Plans so far are a show (daytime and evening performances), a parents’ afternoon, a Summer Fun Day/ Fair hosted by the PTA and a ceremony/mass.
We are appealing for help from the parents. We are looking for old photos throughout the decades, that we can put on display in the school during our celebrations. As much information about each photo would be helpful. We are also looking for any interesting memories or stories about events that parents have experienced, either as parents of pupils in our school or as pupils themselves. We will be sending home special comment/memory postcards in due course. Watch this space.
