Pat Hurley McDonald has once again kept us up to date with news of another get together.  This get together was in honour of Sheila Moriarty Amos, who was on a visit home from Cape Breton.

On October 6th school friends Maureen O’Brien Roche, Cynthia Murphy Downey, Sheila Moyst O’Neill and Nancy Stanley Cook welcomed Sheila home. The ladies met for lunch at Fionn MacCool’s Pub on Kenmount Road and, by all accounts, it was a great get together. I think the photo confirms that!

I hope Sheila had a lovely time at home and I am sure she was delighted to meet up with her dear friends again.  Way to go girls – keep the friendships firm.  They are indeed precious.

Thanks once again Pat.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

St Patrick's Convent School, Patrick St
Sixty four years ago today, on 2nd October 1953, the Corner Stone of the new St Patrick's Convent School on Patrick St was blessed by His Grace, Archbishop P J Skinner.

Just look at that gleaming floor!
Didn't we (under Sr Immaculata's watchful eye) do well?
Thanks to Pat Hurley McDonald for this photo of the interior of Lakecrest School (formerly St Patrick's Convent School). Would you believe that the gleaming floor you see here is the original?  Yes it is an amazing sixty-four years old.  It is the same one we mopped and never, ever walked on with our muddy, wet boots!  Sr Immaculata would be so pleased!
