Dear Parents,

As we approach the first half term of 2019, we would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of our upcoming fundraising events;

  • Grandparents Day will take place in the senior school on Thursday 14th March. This has proven to be a very popular event in the school calendar. Members of the parents’ association will be on hand to provide refreshments. We will also be holding a raffle on the day and will gratefully accept any donations of items that can be included in these hampers.
  • Our bag packing day before Christmas was a big success and we have been lucky enough to secure two more days in March. We will be packing in Dunnes Stores Kilnamanagh on Friday and Saturday 15th & 16th March. We would ask any parents that could donate a couple of hours of their time on either of these days to contact us at
  •  A fundraising Race Night is being held in The Kingswood Lodge on Friday 29th March. We hope that this will be a fun night for the entire community as well as a successful fundraising event. We would love to see as many people as possible there on the night. It is still possible to support this fundraiser even if you cannot make it to the night, as we will be selling ‘spots’ as Horses, Jockeys, Trainers & Owners for each race in advance. All members of the parents’ association are currently selling these. Please show your support – you may even have a winner!!!
  • The annual Easter raffle takes place on Thursday 11th April. We will have 10 hampers to raffle in each school. We would really appreciate any donations to help us to fill these hampers – Easter eggs etc.

This year, through our fundraising efforts we hope to provide the schools with 6 iPads for the junior school, android tablets for the senior school, a defibrillator and subscription to the Aladdin Connect system among many other items. None of this would be possible without your ongoing support and for this we would like to express our heartfelt thanks.
