Cake and Book Sale

A fantastic busy day today at our cake and book sale.  So far we’ve raised a massive €655 for the Evan Hickey fund.  His dad, Joe Hickey very kindly came into the school to tell us about Evan and his illness.  He also gave us lovely certificates of appreciation for all the pupils.  A very thoughtful gesture.

A massive thank you to all the parents who donated cakes and books for the day.  Also to the parents who helped out today since morning, Jeanne, Sharon and Caroline.

Kate O’Hora and Zac Cleary won the Guess the Weight of the Pumpkin competition which was 3kg.

Charlie Skehan was the lucky winner of the raffle for the Halloween cake by Colette Gleeson.  Thank you again to Colette.

Thank you to all for your contributions.
