A Derry primary school is gearing up for a special celebration on Thursday night to mark their 40th birthday.
St Brigid’s Primary School Carnhill are inviting former students, parents, staff and anyone connected with the school to a special Mass on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in St Brigid’s Church.
This will be followed by a reception in the school and a special balloon launch to mark the anniversary.
People will have the opportunity to view the hundreds of pictures that have been found and put on display.
If you’re a former pupil you might even find a picture of yourself.
Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid might be interested in a picture of him taken at the school in 1998.
The school opened in September 1974.
The first principal was Neil McMahon.
In the first year there were classes up to year four and the school continued to grow quickly, until it contained year 1-7.
The school has always attracted pupils from a wide catchment area and continues to enjoy this support.
It now has a nursery unit, nurture centre and autistic and learning support unit.
They say they’d be delighted to welcome back past pupils as well as parents and grandparents.
