PAST PUPILS REUNION 2022

Saturday – 15th October 2022
The Sligo Grammar School Alumni Reunion will take place on Saturday 15th October 2022.
There has been strong interest from alumni celebrating 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, etc years this year and from those who should have had similar reunions in 2020 and 2021 but were unable due to the pandemic. The reunion is open to all years so any alumni can attend.
An itinerary for the day will be confirmed at a later date but should include tea/coffee, assembly in Calry Church and tour of the school during the day (meeting at 2 pm)
The 3 course dinner will be in the Sligo Park Hotel, meeting there at 7pm. A ticket for the dinner is €50. There is a limited number of double/twin rooms at a reduced rate for Alumni on the night. Mention SGS Alumni when booking with the hotel. 
With a large number anticipated, tickets must be booked in advance for the dinner. Please contact us via the email below if you wish to attend and purchase a ticket or let us know if you have any dietary requirements. 
So spread the word and pencil in the date! Looking forward to meeting everyone with what should be one of the largest reunions. 
If you need further information, please contact alumni@sligogrammarschool.org.
