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;
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.
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.
