Parents Association: Excitement is building up for our fun-filled 24 hour Walkathon fundraiser kicking off on Friday 14th June at 3pm at The Fighting Cocks GAA. If you haven’t added your name to the list of walkers yet, please do so by contacting María on (087) 622 6622 and get added to a group. It will be a fantastic way to get your steps in for 1 hour, enjoy great company and raise funds for resources and equipment for all children in the school.

Money from this fundraiser will be invested in supporting the Matilda production, playground resurfacing, sensory space, school tour buses, 6th Class hoodies, STEM and other teaching resources for all classes, extra-curricular activities such as basketball training, among other school needs for the next school year.

The goal is to exceed last year’s amount of €10,000, so we need everyone’s help!

School activities and resources funded by the Parents’ Association during this third term include the following, among others:

 

Buses for School Tours – 50% funding

6th Class Hoodies – 100% funding

Hurling Equipment for Senior Classes – 100% funding

Basketball Coach for 3rd-6th Class – 50% funding

STEM Resources for All Classes – 75% funding

Ice cream for Sports Day – 100% funding

 

A huge thank you to everyone who supports our weekly Split the Pot, as well as our different fundraisers throughout the year. Families’ participation is key to be able to continue funding these activities and resources for all the children in the school.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on 14th-15th June!
