School calls on people to help

AS ST Brigid's Kyogle Centenary Weekend approaches on August 16-17, the centenary committee needs your help!

A fantastic weekend of activities to help mark such an important milestone for not only the school, but also Kyogle, is being put together in a program of events that include an open day at the school on Saturday, followed by a formal dinner on Saturday night. Sunday will see Mass celebrated to mark the centenary, followed by morning tea.

The committee is putting together a history book aiming to reflect the last 100 years, and an updated version of the fantastic cookbook the school has produced in the past.

Are you a past student? Do you have a great story of your school days? Do you have a mouth-watering recipe that you would love to share? What about old school photos?

Also, if you are looking for accommodation, contact the Tourist Information Centre in Kyogle on 02 6632 2700. Or can you offer a room to visitors on the centenary weekend?

Malcolm Wallis, tourism economic development officer from the Kyogle Visitor Information Centre, is an Old Boy from St Brigid's.

"Some of my best childhood memories were collected at St Brigid's and lifelong friendships made," he said.

You don't need to be officially invited to attend any of the centenary weekend events, but you do need to get in touch to come along to the dinner as places are limited. A warm invitation is extended to all past students, teachers and friends of the school.
