Rathdown School

Hillcourt Day

Hillcourt School opened in May 1919, and the history of the next 100 years is rich with fantastic memories and stories. A number of events during 2019 will mark our 100th
anniversary and we hope you will be able to celebrate with us on these occasions.

To coincide with the opening of Hillcourt School on the 15th May 1919, the school celebrated “Hillcourt Day”. The day commenced with a service in St. Paul’s Church in Glenageary, followed by a celebratory lunch for parents, teachers, alumni, governors and former staff in the school. The Junior School girls enjoyed a visiting photo booth and ice cream van, while the Senior students enjoyed sporting festivities and House Games in the gym. Their parents and the wider community enjoyed tea and an endless supply of cakes, all kindly provided by the school parents and beautifully served by the PTA.
