St Laurence’s presented with cheque for ¤17,800
GOLF CLASSIC PARENTS MAKE HUGE EFFORT TO BOOST SCHOOL FUNDS
THE STAFF and management at St. Laurence’s School in Greystones were overwhelmed last week when presented with a cheque for ¤ 17,800 by parents who had raised the money by holding a golf classic back in May.
The funds will go towards the continuing employment of a sports coach for activities such as basketball, soccer and hockey in school.
As well as plenty of mums and dads, four sixth class pupils formed a team including one of their teachers. ‘ Everyone enjoyed a great day of golf as well as raising such a significant amount of money for the school,’ said Principal Catherine Coveney, who said that they are extremely grateful for the incredible amount of hard work that went in to organising the event.
‘ You don’t raise that amount without putting in an enormous amount of effort,’ she said.
Mrs. Coveny said that the school had a great year last year with a wide variety of sport available to pupils.
She said that team sports are very character building, teaching people how to work together and even how to cope with the knocks when their team loses a match.
