It’s coming near that time of year again! Sponsored Walk cards went home today with children. The final date for bringing back cards and money is Thursday 8th June, but if children have them back earlier than that, teachers have promised lots of extra stamps! Each family that brings back a card and money will be given a free ticket for the annual festival which includes BBQ, DJ, novelty games and lots of fun. This is the main fundraising event for the year and all money raised is used to purchase resources for children within the school to support teaching and learning.
Have a look below at what we got up to last year!
Corey and Saoirse made this short “ad” for our Fáilte Festival this weekend during our after school Movie Makers Club. Well done Corey and Saoirse!

On Sunday 9th June, the children, parents, teachers and friends of St Edward’s National School hosted their annual fundraiser, the ‘Fáilte Festival’.
We were blessed with such a fine day. We all set off on our sponsored walk at 3 o’clock and returned to the school at about 4, where staff of the Clarion Hotel had a fantastic barbecue waiting for the hungry walkers.
We also had face painting, a disco, children’s work on display, a photo competition and novelty races.
Thank you very much to everyone who helped and especially, the Home School Association.
A great day was had by all.
Today, the students of St Edwards NS celebrated their Fáilte Festival, which had to be cancelled on Sunday, due to bad weather. We all had great fun.
We did our sponsored walk, had three bouncy castles, face painting and a barbecue.
1st Class really enjoyed themselves and had a fantastic time. They would like to thank everyone who helped organise the day…”Thank You”
