Celebrations are continuing at St Joseph’s Patrician College (The Bish) in Nuns Island to mark the 150th anniversary of the school.
The college is the largest boys second level school in Galway and has served the educational needs of city boys since its inception in 1862.
A special Celebration Dinner is taking place on Saturday 13 October in the Ardilaun Hotel, Taylors Hill to mark 150 years in education.
Tickets are available from the school office in Nuns Island or on the school website at www.bish.ie. This event is expected to be a sell out so early booking is essential in order to avoid disappointment.
Other events, including a mass at St Augustine’s Church on Friday 9 November to celebrate the work of the Patrician Brothers and the Big Breakfast on Sunday 11 November, will allow parents to be part of the celebrations.
“This year is a very important milestone for the college,” says Ciaran Doyle, Principal at St Joseph’s College. “The Bish has a very strong legacy of educational excellence in the city and we are very proud to celebrate the success of the college in delivering second level education to boys in the city.”
