Brother Ryan CBS School retired on Thursday from the CBS Primary School. He is the last of the Brothers to leave the town. A large crowd attended the Retirement Mass and celebration in the school to mark the occasion. The emotion displayed by the pupils, staff and parents was truly remarkable. He was truly respected within the school community. He had a huge influence on the whole school community. He said what truly uplifted him was “the smiles on the children as they came to school each morning”. Indeed, he put a smile on many a child by his own kindness and sensitivity to each pupil. Brother Ryan will be greatly missed.
Our gratitude to the Christian Brothers who made huge contribution to the educational needs of the town and area since 1866AD.
