CHARITABLE EVENTS

In December of each year, pupils are asked to bring in food items for the Christmas hamper. The items are then packaged and delivered to St. Vincent De Paul and Focus Ireland. Occasionally, there is another collection later in the year for Crosscare.

The school also takes part in the Team Hope shoebox appeal in December each year. The children fill wrapped shoeboxes with a range of simple, age appropriate Christmas gifts and personal care products. Team Hope delivers these shoeboxes to children in need around the world.

During Lent, Trocaire Boxes are distributed, on behalf of the dioceses, to the children. There has always been a very generous contribution from the school.

There are also three other Charity collection days as approved by the Board of Management. Often, Non- Uniform days are held to raise funds for a chosen charity.
