Hope Shoe Box Appeal 2016


Annual Shoe Box Appeal 2016

The children from the senior classes along with their siblings participated in our Annual Shoe Box Appeal recently. Over the past month they were busy shopping and filling 67 shoe boxes with all sorts of goodies. They also made a donation of €260, all of which was presented to Patricia Nugent from Team Hope Ireland. Patricia spoke to the pupils about her experiences abroad delivering the boxes to children who have very little and of the great joy the boxes bring annually. She thanked the children for their generosity and thoughtfulness and was really impressed with the photograph the children arranged spelling the word 'HOPE'. Well done to Ms. Clarke for organising the event in the school and she 'hopes' to exceed the number again collected next year.
