Cllr Feely helps launch St.Mary's 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Published: 24 June, 2015

Sinn Féin Erne West Cllr Anthony Feely attended a balloon launch to mark the launch of the 50th Celebrations of St.Mary's High School, Brollagh last week.

Speaking at the event, Cllr Feely said,

"As a former pupil of Brollagh, I was delighted to attend the launch of the 50th Celebrations this evening. The school is a central part of the local community and that was obvious here this evening, with such large numbers in attendance.

"A short while ago the future of the school was uncertain but the whole community united and reversed the decision to close it. Therefore, to be here celebrating the 50th Anniversary is an even greater achievement.

A member of the St.Mary's High School Parents Council, Cllr Feely continues,

"My daughter is just completing her first year at St.Mary's and hopefully my two sons will attend here too. With a significant number of children enrolled to start in September, it highlights the schools track record of providing a first class education and treating all pupils with the respect and attention that they need to ensure they reach their full potential.

"This balloon launch was just the beginning of the celebrations - there are lots more events and highlights coming up throughout the year, such as the publishing of a magazine and a Gala Ball on 14th November.

"I look forward to the upcoming celebrations and I would encourage the whole community to get involved, attend the events and help out in whatever way you can." ENDS
