A huge thank you to Jenny, Leah, Lynn, Michala, Tori and Lorna for standing in the kitchen all morning and serving up the most delicious pancakes to everyone today! Our apologies if anyone arrived home feeling unwell...there were seconds, thirds and possibly even fourths. We had great fun eating and then we held a traditional pancake tossing race outside. We thought it was only fair to give our very helpful Mums a chance to show off their tossing techniques.
Thank you to Leah and to all the other mums who helped make our Coffee Morning such a huge success. A fantastic total of €1050 was raised for school funds. Thank you also to those who sent in all the food and also those who called by for a cup of tea and a chat.
5th & 6th Class travelled to the Abbey Vocational School last Friday to take part in a Basketball Blitz with some of the other local primary schools. They had a great time and it was fun to meet up with friends from other schools.
We have several Fundraising events coming up. The first of these is our Tea/Coffee Morning on February 14th from 11.00 a.m. until 2.00 p.m. We would very much appreciate some help.
Please let Leah know if there is anything you can do to help.
Details of the other fundraising events to follow shortly.
