Publication - Memories in Black and White - Clarecastle School, 2004

Memories in Black and White CBHWG


Memories in Black & White


“The idea of this production started back in 2002 when the construction of a new school for Clarecastle was first mooted. An Editorial committee was formed to produce a magazine to mark the occasion. Our brief was to collect memories of former pupils and to involve the present pupils as much as possible through art, poetry and composition. We also sought involvement of the teachers, and Parents Council and Board of Management.

We are grateful for all the support we received especially the former Pupils who invited us into their homes and told us stories of their upbringing in Clarecastle and school life in bygone days. We sincerely hope we have reproduced your stories accurately. The magazine would not have been possible without the input of the wonderful boys and girls and teachers of Clarecastle NS who contributed quality art, prose and poetry. We thank every one who supplied us with photographs which are an invaluable source of the history of the School down through the years.

We hope you the reader will enjoy the memories, stories and the many photographs as much as we enjoyed collecting them. Perhaps you might send a copy to any of the family away from home, especially overseas.”

This book is now out of print
