In 1966 on the 11th February, the new Form 1 for girls was opened with eighteen students present. Rev. Fr. Doody the Headman of the location and the elders visited the class and encouraged the girls to work hard in school. As the new secondary school building was not started yet the class was allowed to use the former standard 8 class-room.
