The children in our school are a particularly caring bunch. We regularly receive letters asking if it would be ok to organise fundraisers to raise money for others who are in need. This year we had not one, not two but three requests!
In the first term James and Clark organised a balloon raffle to raise money for St. Vincent DePaul. They raised a whopping €431 and also collected gifts and presents for children who otherwise may not receive Christmas gifts.
In the second term, Múinteoir Áine found the most beautiful letter on her desk. Lucy is in 4th class and she wrote to ask if she could organise a dance day for the whole school to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society. We thought it was a fantastic idea and so just after Easter, Lucy and her friends Katie and Katie arranged their dance day for all students. It was a huge success and everyone had a fantastic day.
Lucy and her Mum went to visit the Irish Cancer Society to hand over the money raised and they got a great welcome from everyone there.
Well done Lucy we are so proud of you!
Inspired by Lucy and James and Clark, another one of our wonderful students approached Múinteoir Áine with another great idea! Daniel came up with the idea of a Crazy Hair Day! He wanted to raise money for Irish Guide Dogs to help other children benefit from the amazing work they do in providing assistance dogs for people with autism. Daniel gave a wonderful presentation to each class on the day and his own dog Maggie even came to say hello!
Thank you so much to Daniel, his brother Ben, his mum Noelle and of course to Maggie!
