ELIZABETH - The former St. Patrick's School in Elizabeth has been given a new life under a new name.

The school has reopened at a new location under the name, The Patrick School.

The near century and a half year-old institution was on the list of schools to be closed last year.

School officials say volunteer and donations flowed in, much of it from alumni families, and the school reopened last fall in a renovated building.

The Patrick School has 140 students enrolled there, most of which came from St. Patrick's.
