Past and present students, parents and friends of Retaval Belfield Infants School came together to celebrate the Farewell Mass in Thanksgiving for the past 18 years. Don Khoury, founding parent and member of the PARED board, spoke about the school’s humble beginnings. The atmosphere was joyous as old friends reconnected and enjoyed morning tea together. The cake was certainly something to behold!It was an emotional but heart-warming moment when the final Class of 2018, in a symbolic gesture, released balloons into the air as a way of honouring all past and present. The life and vision of Retaval Belfield will continue to live on in all who graced its halls.
