The School’s ANNUAL FUNDRAISING RAFFLE was held on Thursday April 11th, 2019. It was very successful, raising lots of money to make the school even better and to make the children’s learning even more interesting.
The Parents’ Association Fundraising Committee had been very busy, sourcing really great prizes, publicizing the event, circulating tickets and selling them. Parents sold raffle tickets in Supervalu and outside Holy Rosary Church after 11.30 Mass.
‘We, the Parents Association, wish to thank our local community for their support. We had many nice chats and it was wonderful that so many are interested in our school and its development’.
The importance of community links was illustrated, when the first prize was won by a member of the community and the winner generously donated a substantial amount of his prize to the school!
There were prizes galore including 500 euro in cash, a laptop and an electric scooter. There were also prizes for the top ticket seller: 1st – 35 euro, 2nd – 25 euro and 3rd – 15 euro. The seller of the 1st prize ticket got 25 euro. Ms. Hughes’ class, the class that sold the most tickets won an Easter egg each.
There was also be a free classroom draw on the day with a chance for children to win prizes. As a result there was a real party atmosphere in the school and a feeling of anticipation.
Fingers and toes were crossed!
Everyone was hoping to win a prize!
And because of the way it was organised, many, many students did win a prize and went home very happy!
Thank you to the Fundraising Committee of the Parents’ Association. We appreciate all your hard work. We definitely have the BEST Parents’ Association in the world. Their work makes all the difference to the school.
