A message from the Fundraising Committee St Brigid’s NS.
A big thank you to everyone involved in supporting the ANNUAL SCHOOL RAFFLE. We were blessed with a sunny day which meant the whole school could attend the draw for the first time in three years. We had many parent helpers on the day with children from an array of school classes and years to assist with the logistics. The Chairperson of the school’s Board of Management Mr Tom Sherlock, our Parents Association Chairperson Niamh Coyle and our Principal Ms Costello were in attendance. Our Community Garda Maria Curtis was there to witness the event and ensure we followed proper process. Mr Dodd was on hand to provide upbeat music and a sound system so we could be heard.
All classes filed into the yard with their teachers. The excitement was palpable. Lots of smiles and cheers, with many having their fingers crossed. Not everyone could be a winner however we did have many, and we all shared in their excitement. After the main raffle the children went back to their classrooms. There they held their free class-only draw. We had at least two small surprise prizes per class. So we had even more school winners!
We wish to thank our students, parents, extended families, the wider community including all our great prize sponsors. Without this support the event could not happen. Whilst selling tickets into the community we had many wonderful conversations about our school’s past. We were told of grandchildren attending, stories from adults who has attended themselves many years ago. The community is very interested in our school current development and our new outdoor play surface. We welcomed this opportunity to connect locally. We certainly feel part of an inclusive community.
We will add the prize list and names of winners shortly.
We wish you all a Happy Easter.
