What an amazing success and a phenomenal feat undertaken by the core team from 2nd Class supported by all parents in 2nd Class. Thank you for being so generous with your time since August enabling the school to raise an additional €18,500 and providing us all with a fun wider school community event. The up-cycled dresser creatively designed by Marena sold for €210. Maeve, a past pupil, lost her home made ‘Cat in the Hat’ hat at the fair. If you have any information on this please contact the school.
Empathising with building issues in other schools
Our hearts go out to all of the schools affected by closure due to health and safety building issues. Fortunately our construction was not by Western Building Systems. We have been successfully audited for fire, health and safety by both the Department of Education and an external company.
