Teach­ers at the CBS Pri­mary School get into the spirit by dress­ing up for the an­nual Fun Run to raise funds for the school.

THE PUPILS at the CBS Pri­mary School let their imag­i­na­tions run wild for their an­nual Fun Run on Fri­day morn­ing.

The event, which is in its 30th year, is al­ways held on the first Fri­day in Oc­to­ber and is one of the school’s main fundrais­ers, the pro­ceeds of which go to­wards the main run­ning of the school.

There were ghosts and gob­lins, cow­boys and In­di­ans, clowns and, in al­most every class­room, the Avengers as­sem­bled to keep or­der on the shenani­gans!

School prin­ci­pal Vicky Bar­ron re­marked: ‘The kids were given spon­sor­ship cards in ad­vance of the run and we are very grate­ful to the wider com­mu­nity who sup­ported them and the school.

‘The funds will go to­wards things like heat­ing, pa­per, ba­sic things that schools shouldn’t have to fundraise for but the De­part­ment doesn’t fund schools ad­e­quately for.’

While money was still com­ing in, Ms Bar­ron es­ti­mated that around €5,000 was raised.
