Fun Run, Trip to Germany

Teachers Get Kitted Out for the Fun Run Fund Raiser
Annual Fun Run
On Friday morning we had our annual Fun Run, organised once more by our superb Parents’ Council to raise funds for the school. This year the theme chosen by the Students’ Council was “Sports Stars” and many excellent and some very strange outfits were on view as we headed down towards the Lookout on the first stage. Some ran, others dawdled and first years put their elders to shame as some of them completed seven laps!
Run over, all headed into the senior hall for bottles of water and the prize giving. Every student who had raised at least €10 sponsorship was entered for a draw for an iPad and the lucky winner was Doireann O’Keeffe in T.Y. The Principal’s prize for most sponsorship raised went to first year student Bethany Miller. The Teacher’s draw saw Mrs. Ashe win a raffle prize. As usual, the Parents’ Council had gathered a huge amount of spot prizes and there were delighted winners in all class groups.
Well done to all who made an extra special effort to dress up and thank you to all families and friends who sponsored the students and teachers to raise €2,622 for our school!
Thank you to South East Vending who supplied the bottles of water to refresh and rehydrate our runners. And of course thanks to Teresa Daly and all members of the Parents’ Council who worked so hard to make this a success once again.
A very special thanks to Moira Keany who supplied most of the prizes. Moira works very hard to ensure the success of the Fun Run, organising sponsorship cards, prizes etc. The school community would like to sincerely thank her for tremendous work over the years she has been a valued member of the Parents’ Council. Unfortunately Moira will have to step down this year as her daughter is doing her Leaving Cert. She will sorely missed.
October Trip to Germany
The students who will travel to Berlin and Hamburg next October mid- term met up with Mrs. O’Sullivan and Mrs. Power for an update on preparations. The time won’t be long passing so all those travelling need to ensure that their passports and E.U. Health cards are up to date. The European Health Insurance can be applied for online.
