Published in 2014 to mark the centenary of Valley National School, this 108 page book and double DVD celebrates both the school and village life in the Valley over the past century. One of the DVDs contains images of photographs from the Exhibition held in the school in summer 2014, and the other DVD has images submitted to the Centenary Committee. In addition to messages from An Taoiseach and the Archbishop of Tuam, there is a limited edition bookmark containing a poem reproduced by kind permission of the President Michael D. Higgins.
From the Principal’s message:
“The writing and stories in the book reflect the role the school has played in the lives of so many, near and far, young and not so young. The book in its content is reflective of the spirit of the people of the Valley and Dugort.”
