Dualla N.S. Blessing & Official Opening Friday, 15th June: Plans are well advanced for the official opening of our new school. It promises to be a memorable day for pupils past and present as well as teachers and parishioners. We ask the families in the parish who know the whereabouts of former pupils to contact them and invite them along. We are planning a Memory Display Board for the day and we would love to get old photographs, hear old stories and anecdotes about ‘school through the fields’. We really want to hear from the senior people of the parish who attended or were associated with the school. Put a few words down on paper and search the old cupboards at home for old photos. You may hand these in to the school or the sacristy (the sooner the better) at any time. Let us make the opening of our new school a memorable, happy and enjoyable occasion for everyone.
