Any of these young faces ring a bell?

CALLING all past pupils of Tattygar Primary School! Your alumni needs you.
Ahead of the school’s 90th anniversary celebrations, which take place on Friday September 28th and will include a Mass followed by a party in the school, former pupils are being asked to contribute any nostalgic images they have to the event. The school has already amassed memorabilia from down through the past nine decades for the big event, but are still on the look out for more old photos.
Like the one accompanying this article, which is believed to have been taken circa 1950. So far only a few children in the photo have been recognised, and so the school has asked for help identifying the rest of the pupils, who really do appear to sum up the school’s motto of “learning, fun and friendship since 1928.”
“We would love to put a name to every happy face in this photo,” said Zoe Britton, who is helping organise the event.
Zoe reiterated the call made earlier in the summer by principal Joanne McCaffrey, as well as for those with connections to the school to come along to the big night.
“We want to reach out to as many past pupils as possible, to have as many there as possible on the night. There are generations of families who have attended the school,” she said.
“Come and catch up with old friends. The will be old photos on display, organised by decade, old roll books, video displays, speeches, hot food and refreshments, and traditional music from the Travelling Trads.
“We’re also urging people to send in any old photos they may have relating to the school before the event.”
Those with old photos, or who can identify anyone in the above photograph, is asked to drop the images or names off with Mrs Magee, school secretary, or to email Mrs McCaffrey at
Alternatively you can call the school on 66387674.
Those planning on attending on the night are also asked to contact the school via the same methods, to give the organisers an idea of how many to cater for.

The Topped Mountain Path Garvary will be closed from today and is due to reopen in October.
