Today we said a fond farewell to Patricia Keely and we wish her the best of luck in her retirement from Scoil Mhuire Allenwood. Patricia has worked in Allenwood Schools for 35 years. She has seen many changes during that time. She seen Allenwood GNS grow from a three teacher school in the 1980's to a six teacher school when it closed in June 2017 to amalgamate with Allenwood BNS. The new amalgamated school has 14 teachers. We were joined by Patricia's family and there was a presentation made to her from The Board of Management, The Parents Association and the Staff. Patricia spoke fondly of her time in Allenwood and wished the newly amalgamated school every success going forward. All in attendance retired to the staff room to chat and enjoy refreshments kindly provided by the Parents Association.
