We hope you had a warm and restful mid-term break. It’s great to see the kids back into their classes this week. We had a Bag2School fundraiser this week as well and we wish to thank everyone who dropped a bag of clothes on Wednesday. We raised €161.55 for our school by collecting 461.05kg of used garments and an additional €16.15 has also been added to the LauraLynn House charity too. LauraLynn House is a specially designed, health care facility that aims to provide a warm and welcoming ‘home from home’ environment, dedicated to children with palliative care needs and their families. So we thank you all for your continued support.
