Heather from Dogs Trust and Ted her rescue dog came to the school today to collect the food donations and knitted blankets for their rescue centres.
Thank you to all those who took the time to knit blankets for the dogs and who gave food and toys for them. It was much appreciated by Heather on behalf of Dogs Trust.
Past pupil Jack Phelan was presented with teaching aids as donated by the Student Council. He will use these materials when he travels to India in January as part of the Flame of Hope initiative to help children in need. Best of luck to Jack in this worthwhile venture.
There is now a collection box for non-perishable goods in the school’s reception for those wishing to donate to the St. Vincent DePaul Christmas Food Appeal for the needy of Carrick-on-Suir and the surrounding areas. The donations will be collected on Friday December 15th.
