Focus Ireland is a great organization which helps the homeless. One of our sixth class teachers, Mr.McGovern had the idea to hold a fundraising event. With the help of many teachers and students the school was able to coordinate the event. It took place on Friday the 29th of September.
The pupils enjoyed many activities such as rounders, soccer and ringtoss. We were very fortunate to have great weather on the day and the event went very well. We were very pleased to hear the school raised an astonishing €2007. We would like to thank the parents for any donations they gave too. It is great for the students to learn about homelessness and what we could do as a community to help. Learning and encouragement is vital to make sure we all understand what it means to help and to appreciate the houses and schools we have.
Focus Ireland hold other events and are open for donations at any time. If you would like to find out more the link is below.
