Things are in progress to officiate the opening of the SMI new block, named after the late Brother Ultan Paul. The opening is to coincide with the OMA Annual Banquet when old boys from far and near will be back for a grand reunion.
Brother Vincent Corkery has consented to officiate at the event by unveiling a granite plaque, detailing names of all donors who had made the construction of the new building possible.
On another vein, calls are still being made to ensure that the neglected tyre is placed to where it should be - the primary school compound- and not abandoned infront of the secondary school staff room, near the drain. Yesterday, some concerned boys placed the tyre against the wall, ensuring that it is not stepped or trampled on. Old boys, I believe, still remember the tyre as a symbol linking them closely to the school and not a mere object. Tell us how you feel and we will forward the matter to the committee. Be quick as the next meeting is soon.
