Gymnasium

The Gymnasium was built in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The first school basketball game was played in the gym before it was even finished.

The steel framework was available shortly after

the Second World War, and the monks made use

of this less costly construction method.

Two monks, Fr Robert West on the far end, and

Br. Gerald Kelly on the near end rode the frame

up and are now fastening it in place.

A crew of monks is helping to put stucco on the

wall. The monk on the left is probably Abbot

Ignatius. Shortly after completion of the

building, a handball court was constructed

against the east wall of the Gym, and given the

very sturdy construction of this court, the

townspeople assumed that the monks were

putting braces on the building that they had just

completed
