Bake Sale and Coffee Morning

On Wednesday 13th June, 6th class students held a Bake Sale and Coffee Morning to raise funds for charity. The school hall was transformed into a vibrant coffee shop where parents and friends gathered to enjoy delicious cakes and pastries. Students from all classes bought treats to have with their lunch. Thank you to all who supported our venture, especially those who donated baked goods. A total of €640 was raised and this will be shared between Trócaire and Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

They lost to a very strong Meath team but acquitted themsevles very well and gained valuable playing experiences along the way.  Huge congratulations and well done to all involved.
