In addition to its Stewart’s Hospital links, the School is always involved in fund-raising for other charitable causes, running Fashion Shows, Talent Contests, Non-Uniform Days, Bake Sales, etc.
A number of students and staff are heading to Kolkata on April 7th, 2017 in conjunction with the Hope Foundation and have lots of events planned in the Spring term that they hope you will get on board with and show your support for a very good cause. These include:
- Staff & Parent/Past Pupil Firewalk - new date of January 19th, 2017 - those who already signed up meet at the back of school between 6 and 6.30pm to register. Anticipated finish time 9pm.
- Concert for Kolkata - January 26th, 2017 at 7.30pm in the Wilson Wright Hall - tickets €10 - any raffle prizes welcome.
A huge note of appreciation must go this year to some of our TY students from myself and Heart Children Ireland. On 28th of April 38 students sold windmills on their behalf. There was a huge effort put in by all students and the very respectable sum of €4377.04 was raised. Top collectors this year were Aislinn Purkiss and Amelie Jurgens, Annika Doyle and Kate Bambrick, Vishal Khadanga and Ahmed Ashfaque and Sarah Butler and Ciara Kennelly.
