Deniliquin St Michael’s School celebrated 125 years of Catholic education in Deniliquin last Friday.
Youngsters were quick to join in on the celebrations dressing up to an olden day theme.
They marched through St Mercy’s Hall in front of parents and friends as they imagined their ancestors would have.
St Michael’s School principal Bernadette Murphy said the day was a ‘‘great success’’.
‘‘We had a lot of parents come to our celebrations, a 91 year-old past pupil was among our guests — that was pretty special,’’ Mrs Murphy said.
‘‘The students absolutely loved it.’’
The St Michael’s School has experienced a number of changes in 125 years.
It was relocated twice, operated as a boarding school during the war years and was demolished and rebuilt only to be destroyed by a fire in 1951. It was rebuilt thanks to the Deniliquin community on its present site.
Knitting, crafts, ‘egg and spoon’, sack races and croquet were only a small number of activities from yesteryear in which the students were involved.
