Ard Scoil na nDéise Lourdes Helper Fund
The Christmas spirit was evident in the Ard Scoil this month with generous fundraising for our annual Lourdes helper fund. Every year, Ard Scoil na nDeise sends student helpers to work with the Waterford and Lismore Pilgrimage to Lourdes.
We would like to thank all our supporters who raised over €500 towards the fund with a monster Christmas raffle. We particularly thank the generous donors in local businesses who donated such great prizes. We had almost 20 winners, full of excitement on the last day before our Christmas holidays. Santa and his helpers announced the winners with much music and jingle bells.
St. Vincent De Paul Christmas Fund
There is a long tradition of support for the local charity in Ard Scoil na nDéise at Christmas. T.Y. singers with their music teacher, Mrs. Lucey and Mr. Collins, organised the lovely carol singing in Dungarvan town and raised €300. Thank you to all the participants and most especially to the generous public.
Proceeds of Ard Scoil na nDéise Transition Year carol singing are presented to members of Dungarvan St. Vincent De Paul.
