Thank you to you all for your continued support to the school. The parents'association donated a cheque for €3350 that will go towards the purchase of laptops. They worked so hard to raise this money before the school went into lockdown. Thank you to everyone for your generosity. They have planned the Christmas Card fundraiser, school calendars and a sponsored Halloween trick or treat walk . Great energy and enthusiasm !. Here we are in a socially distanced photo.
