It’s a cliche, but your school days really are the best days of your life.
You rarely look back at photos taken in primary schools and see anything other than young students in great form.
Alf Harvey’s presence in a school generally meant things would be giddier than usual as a photographer showing up to take your photo for the local newspaper was a big deal.
It usually ensured no class, probably no homework – and plenty of craic.
And that was the case in Scoil Aonghusa in Stradbally in 2008 when they were one of the local schools honoured with a Green Flag for their environmental efforts.
In 2008 the girls and boys schools were still separate but they have since come together to form St Colman’s NS.
Regardless, we’re sure these great photos will bring memories flooding back to all concerned.
