PA Christmas Draw
Published on December 22, 2023

Parents Association Christmas Draw and Christmas Raffle: Our annual “12 Days of Christmas” Draw this week created great excitement among the children, and we’d like to thank all the families who took part and contributed to the €1,683 raised. All funds will be used to support the different classes in any way needed.

Congratulations to our winners: Hughie Kieran, Sophia Slattery, Ann Fitzgerald, Isobel Rooney, Nathan O’Byrne, Therese O’Brien, Teresa Timmins, Liam & Jack Rooney, Annalise Murphy, Margaret c/o Michael Cranley, Jim Hogan and Conor Haskins.

Our extra special children’s hamper went to Liam and Jack Rooney.

We would like to thank enormously the local sponsors who have supported all the PA’s Christmas activities this year:

– Fighting Cocks GAA Club – ⁠Ballyvass Baked Goodies – ⁠⁠Clonmore Meats – Joe O’Toole & Sons

– ⁠Morgan’s Pharmacy – ⁠Morrissey’s’ Pharmacy

– Raths Carlow – ⁠Studio33 Crafts Also, a big thank you to everyone who generously donated vouchers and items for the Christmas Draw hampers.

We were delighted to see so many families joining us in Sona after the evening Christmas Carol service on Tuesday. Thank you again to everyone who brought in the delicious home-baked goodies. Our Tree of Remembrance was also a welcomed addition. The children enjoyed adding their loved ones to the branches. We were equally thrilled to hear that Junior and Senior Infants enjoyed a fun pizza party on Wednesday to celebrate their brilliant performance at the Tuesday morning Carol service.
