Silver Jubilee of Rosmini High School, Tanzania

Rosmini High School in Tanga, Tanzania, which was founded by Galway native Fr. Tony Mitchell (RIP, pictured below), recently celebrated its Silver Jubilee.

The occasion was marked by a special Mass celebrated by the bishop’s representative, Rev. Fr. Sylvester Nitunga, and concelebrated by Rosminian priests Frs. Isaac, Nicas, Isaiah, Richard and Simon. Mass was followed by the school’s 23rd graduation ceremony, where 117 students marked the successful completion of their O Level education.

As part of a land mark monument for the Silver Jubilee celebrations, the school has initiated the construction of a multipurpose school hall which will cater for internal games, as well as provide much needed space for sitting national exams. In this way, Rosmini High School hopes to carry on its excellent academic record.

Some photos of the day’s Jubilee celebrations can be seen below.
