We held our first Halloween Cake Sale today, Friday 27th October 2017. The 6th class students, their parents and some members of the PA organised this cake sale and ran it effortlessly throughout the day. We decided to hold the cake sale to raise money to buy a defibrillator for the school. Hopefully we will never have to use it but we felt it would be a real asset to have one on the school premises. We were blown away by the amount of cakes that were brought in and we were delighted with the amount of money we raised. The final total was 2,576.35 euro. This was double our target! We had so many cakes that we were able to offer second helpings and we also donated some cakes, bread, etc. to two Homeless charities.
We were very honoured to have a special visitor to our school today. The Minister for Health, Simon Harris, was delighted when he heard we were raising money to buy a defibrillator so he decided to come and visit. Ms Costello welcomed Mr Harris to the school and he spoke to the 6th class students in the hall. Ella and Hannah, from 6th class spoke to Mr Harris on behalf of the students of St. Brigids and Laoise Fenelon presented Mr. Harris with a cake she made for this special occasion.
