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.


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.


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.
