I was one of the first intake to St Augustines when it opened in 1963. Vincent J Mcgeown was the headmaster & Mr McConnell was VP. Some others were Mr Donnelly who taught science & maths, Denis (Dominic?) Burns who taught English. John Orr was a young teacher who took woodwork. He was the first one to try to get rugby going at the school. He lived in Ballynahinch & got a couple of games for Ulster. Rugby never flourished because it wasn't a "catholic" sport in those days. I remember Pat "Tiny" Kerr & Michael May whose family owned a jewellers shop in Anne Street. I still have a copy somewhere of the first school magazine. The original school houses were named after Irish islands. There was Aran, Achill, Rathlin & can't remember the last one.  Any body out there share these memories?
