First Communion 2018
Most of the children in 2nd class made their First Communion in Kilberry Church on Sunday, the 28th of April 2018. After the mass all the children and their families were invited back to the school hall for refreshments. The parents of 1st class catered for the families on the day also and got the hall ready for the occasion. And as you can see from the photos they did a great job. So thanks to all those parents who helped out on the day pouring cups of tea, (and cleaning up afterwards), to those who made sandwiches and treats and to those who helped decorate the hall and transport tables etc. And thank you to Marcella Wogan who make the individual cakes for each child in 2nd class.
Cash for Clobber – April 2018
Thanks to all who brought in unwanted clothes etc for our Cash for Clobber fundraiser on Tuesday, 17th April, 2018. Thanks to your donations we raised €175.
Book Fair – April 2018
The PA ran a very successful Book Fair with Celtic Travelling Books. Every book that the children bought at the fair helped to earn “Rewards” that the school can now spend on free books and resources for the classrooms and library. The children took advantage of the opportunity to get their hands on some great reading material. Thank you to all the parents who gave money to their children to buy books. Your support is much appreciated and your children will soon be seeing the results of your generosity appearing in their classrooms. We earned €1475.65 in Rewards and the teachers are selecting the books for the school.
Silver Circle Draw 2018
The Silver Circle Draw took place over 5 weeks in April and May 2018. Congratulations to all of the winners. And thank you to all who bought (and sold) lines in the draw. Your generosity means that we made a profit of €2240 on the draw.
The money raised has funded the purchase a defibrillator kit and training on how to use it for the school. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can affect anyone, no matter what age, gender or fitness level. So being as prepared as possible to help someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest is important and having a defibrillator kit on site is ideal.
