The special free event is being staged at M19 Bar and music venue on Stockport Rd in Levenshulme on Friday 24th February, doors open at 7.30pm. Many of the former pupils had Irish ancestry and have played a key part in promoting the Emerald Isle in Manchester.

The event is aimed at anyone who attended or who taught at the School between its opening in 1967 and its last year in 1977, it will be for pupils who are now aged 55 to 65.

The event has been organised by former student Kevin Spiller whose Dad was also a teacher at the College, Kevin commented "We wanted to do something to mark the 50th anniversary of the School which opened in February 1967 and was amalgamated in 1977 and then became St Albans and later St Peters. It is just for people who attended durig the ten years it was open as SS Peter and Paul. We have enquiries from all over the world from former students and teachers. It will be an oppurtunity to meet up with old school friends and teachers. I cant wait to see what everybody is doing now and to share stories about the good old days in the 1970's."
