Cash for Clothes Collection

Wednesday, 1st May from 7.00 – 8.30 p.m.

We will be running another Cash for Clothes collection on Wednesday 1st May at our school. It’s a great chance to clear out and help the school at the same time.

If you have any unwanted Scoil Naomh Barra uniform items that are in good condition these could be bagged separately for our uniform swap shop which will take place before school starts next year.

Items that will be accepted for the collection are:

Clothes Shoes (in pairs) Curtains Handbags Belts Hats ScarvesDuvet covers Pillow Cases Sheets Soft Toys

We had such a great night at the Quiz Night last year that we’ve decided to do it all over again!
This year’s Quiz Night will be in Simonstown G.F.C. and will take place on Friday, 10th May at 8.00 p.m.
The Quiz M.C. will be Andy O’Reilly and we’ll have music afterwards from Michael McGarry. So it promises to be a great night all round.
Tables will cost €40 per team (4 max per team) and places are limited so get booking now to secure your place.

World Book Day - Dress Up & Book Fair by Scoil Naomh Barra PA

Thanks to everyone who supported our Book Fair in March 2024.

With your help we earned €1715.10 for the school to spend on books.  This will be added to the remainder of the rewards earned last year and spent on books for the school library.  


To raise some much needed funds for the development of a new AstroTurf pitch at our school we are running a Big Money Draw. We hope that everyone will support this fundraiser.  The pitch will be a huge asset to our school – it will provide an all weather terrain for lots of sporting activitites for all of the children. See this page for more details and how to enter.
