Ice Cream Party in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland

Today the children in Junior Infants, Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd classes hosted an ice cream party in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland. We are delighted to reveal that we have raised 130 euro. We would like to thank all the parents and children from these classes who kindly donated the money, it is very much appreciated. All of the money will now be donated to Down Syndrome Ireland and will go towards helping young children with Down Syndrome and their families. Here are just a few snaps of the fun that was had by all who attended;


It’s beginning to feel a lot like…

At a special Advent Assembly last week, we learned about Advent and lit candles on our Advent Wreath. Emma Robinson, a past pupil of St. Edward’s and the 2015 Sligo Rose of Tralee, told us about a terrible event which happened in a place called Chernobyl in Ukraine in 1986. The children living there are still very sick and need a lot of help. Emma is raising funds to go to an orphanage in Ukraine to help them. She will also bring medicine and toys. We talked about how we could help her to raise funds. We will have two non-uniform days on Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd of December when everybody can bring in €1 or more to help support Emma in her work.

Each year it is the job of the Senior Infants to put the statues in the school crib. We heard the story of the announcement that the Angel Gabriel made to Mary and what happened when Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethleham.   You are very welcome to come and visit our crib, it is located at the waiting area near reception.

Hat and Wig Charity Day

Last week we held a charity day to raise some funds for the survivors of the recent earthquakes in Nepal. There were some very interesting hats and wigs around and we had some fun! Thank you to all the staff and pupils who raised €660 on the day.

Recycle Batteries for Charity


We are collecting used batteries to help raise funds for Laura Lynn House, the 1st children’s hospice to open in Ireland.

Each battery sent to WEEE Ireland will raise 1c for the ‘Spread a Little Sunshine’ appeal.

Please send all your used batteries to school.
