New playground at St Iberius school
THERE WAS great excitement at St Iberius National School when they held the official opening of their playground, complete with brand new climbing frame.
The event corresponded with the annual Trick or Treat Temple Street Breakfast Morning which saw a number of parents volunteering their services for the fundraising event.
The playground climbing frame was the result of a fundraising campaign by board of management, parents’ council, and the 91 pupils in the school. The idea had come from the student’s council, who voiced their desire to see a climbing frame installed in the grounds.
A variety of events, including a table quiz, carol singing, and an Easter Walk among other things, including a donation from the board of management, resulted in the purchase and installation of the equipment.
Speakers on the day included school principal Caroline Delaney, and two members of the student council, before Rev Conor O’Reilly performed a blessing.
The Breakfast Morning raised a total of €200.
Helping out on the day were Liz Allen, Shelia Reynolds and Paula Foster. Derek Kentish and John Smith from the East London Model Railway Group who take part in the exhibition every year.
Colin Randall making some adjustments.
