Twenty years have passed since the class of 1995 had their last lesson in Loreto and this Friday, old school friends will gather together to reminisce on the past.

Everyone who was a student in Loreto Wexford between 1990 and 1995 is being encouraged to come along to the Loreto '95 School Reunion, which will kick off on January 29 at 7.30 p.m.

The special event will commence with a tour of the school building led by Sr Christine. With the school moving to a new premises in the near future, this could be the last chance for the ex-students to walk its corridors. Following the tour, everyone will gather in The Crown Bar at 8.30 p.m. for drinks and a much-needed catch-up.

The event is being organised by several former pupils of the school. They have set up a Facebook page for all attendees, which can be found at Loreto Reunion.
