An emo­tional day at St. Fer­gals N.S.

Bray People - - Bray People -

LAST SUN­DAY’S mid­day mass was a very spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion for seven teach­ers and the care­taker of St. Fer­gal’s Na­tional School.

The mass marked the re­tire­ment of the staff and was an ac­knowl­edge­ment from the parish of the hard work and ser­vice given by them over many years.

Stu­dents from both St. Fer­gal’s Ju­nior and Se­nior Schools pre­sented the teach­ers and Oliver Lowe the care-taker with a small gift from the parish.

This year will see the re­tire­ment of Mar­garet Gille­spie, Teresa Thomp­son, Mick Lyons, Anne Lacey, Sheila Grace, Cather­ine Dilleen and Agnes Be­han who is tak­ing up the post of prin­ci­pal at a school in Avoca.

Care-taker Oliver Lowe served the school for al­most 20 years and his great char­ac­ter proved to be well liked by all the staff and chil­dren who at­tended the school.
