On Friday last our students took part in the national Jersey day charity day. The students each paid 2 euro to wear their favourite football Jersey to school instead of their uniform. Many staff also participated in this great fundraiser for charity. This was a nation wide event run by the charity Goal. Goal will use this money to raise funds for vital projects by Goal in countries such as Sudan, India and Kenya. Over 780 euros was raised and we would like to say well done to all students and staff for making this day a great success.
CLASS 1B: TEAM BUILDING
Thursday afternoon last saw class 1B take part in an afternoon of team-building activities. The class and Mrs. Dodd went to Seomra for the afternoon and participated in various games and tasks. It was a good opportunity for class members to get to know each other better and an opportunity for the class to work together. A great afternoon was had by all.
FOURTH YEAR GUEST SPEAKER
Our fourth years met with a representative from the Hope foundation. Both classes listened to a presentation about how many Irish schools are adopting a project in Calcutta in India and helping to finance a vital project. The Hope foundation works with street children of Calcutta and tries to get as many as possible off the streets and into homes. They also provide free education and workshops so older children can learn a trade.
The foundation also arrange for Irish students to travel to India and see for themselves what a difference their money can make. Our students were moved by the presentation and are currently working on taking part in this project.
