The school was visited recently by a delegation from the Fr. Flanagan League Society in the USA. They came to honour one of last year's 6th Class pupils, Fatima Jamshaid, who helped design the Society's new crest. Fatima, now a student in the Ursuline College, took part in a competition to design a crest in keeping with the mission of Fr. Edward, Flanagan, a Roscommon born priest who went to Summerhill College. Her design and two others were combined to form the final prototype, which will be used by the society in all its literature and promotional work into the future. Fatima was presented with memorabilia associated with Fr. Flanagan and Boystown by the President of the society, Steve Wolf, a former resident of Boystown, Nebraska. A big thank you to 6th Class teacher, Mrs Siobhán Calleary, who organised the competition in the school!
Some pupils from 6th Class took part in a competition to design a crest for the Fr. Flanagan League. Fr. Flanagan was the Irish born Priest, educated in Summerhill College, who went on to found Boystown in the USA, where he looked after underprivileged boys.
