Deise Animal Sanctuary Donations

Today Rob from Deise Animal Sanctuary came into the boys and girls to talk about all the work they do at the sanctuary to rescue and rehome neglected and unwanted animals.  Rob brought in three small rescue dogs that helped him throughout the day!  He was very grateful for all the donations from the pupils and parents.  Well done to the Student Council for all their work.

Deise Animal Sanctuary Donations

The Student Council have decided to help support the work of the Deise Animal Sanctuary who are based in the Nire Valley in County Waterford. They help lots of animals such as dogs, cats, birds and sheep.

The Student Council of Ballyneale N.S want to support this great charity by donating animal food, toys, beds and grooming supplies for these vulnerable animals.

We love animals of all sorts and are delighted that the Deise Animal Sanctuary are rescuing them and giving them better homes.

Could all donations please be dropped into the foyer of the school before the 31st of May.  Thank you, The Student Council.

Thanks to all the parents who volunteered to help with the Annual Christmas Hamper Raffle, raising awareness, making the hampers and wrapping….

A lot of people went home with fantastic hampers, thanks to all who kindly donated items for the raffle.  It is important for the school that draws like this are supported, the money raised is used for the hiring of buses for swimming, out of school activities etc.
