New play­ground at St Iberius school

Wexford People - - NEWS -

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.
