Many thanks as always for your support.
This annual fundraiser was, once again, a great success with a total of €3,010 raised by the sale of beautiful Christmas cards designed by the children. The school receives 50% of the total raised. Thanks to everyone who purchased cards this year.
The children have all made fantastic Christmas cards which they brought home last week. The last day to purchase your cards is Tuesday 24th November.
Each year the school gets approximately 50% of the sale of the cards so it is a great fundraiser. Return your completed form along with the payment in an envelope to your child's teacher.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this year's raffle. You helped us raise a staggering €5,435. And a very special thanks to all the businesses who donated prizes and sponsorship.
