 This year marks 100 years since the founding of Hillcourt School, and a century of education on the Rathdown School campus in Glenageary.

Rathdown School is an amalgamation of Hillcourt, The Hall School, Park House and Glengara Park, and this exhibition celebrates the history of the four schools and their long association with the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area, including Belgrave Square, the Knox Memorial Hall, Clarinda Park, Upper and Lower Glenageary Road, St. Paul’s Church, and Castle Park, not to mention swimming in the sea-filled baths, running on the pier and canoeing in the harbour. A variety of photos, artefacts and memories from the school archives will be on display.
