6th Class Sale

A total of €2,104 was raised at the 6th Class Sale on Friday 24th June. This is a fantastic result and 6th class pupils, parents and staff, particularly Dave Mc Inerney and Concepta Davidson, deserve huge credit for the amount of hard work involved in achieving it. A total of €1500 will be donated to the Kildare and West Wicklow Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The remaining €604 will be spent on extra resources for the Aistear Room. Thank you to everyone who supported the sale.
