Sponsored Walk and Run

Sponsored Walk and Run

Friday was a very busy day in St. Paul’s with all the children taking part in our annual sponsored walk and run. The children from Junior Infants to Fourth Class walked various routes around the village, while the children in Fifth and Sixth Class had more of a challenge having to run around Fairyhouse Racecourse. The day was a great success and well done to everyone for taking part.

Thank you to all the children and their families for gathering sponsorship money for our school, and thank you also to our Parents’ Association for supplying water and apples for all the children.

Daffodil Day was a huge success this year and we are delighted to report that we raised €1,557 for the Irish Cancer Society. This would not have been possible without our wonderful Student Council who were very busy all day selling daffodils, pins and raffle tickets! Thank you also to Ms. Swanton’s Fifth Class who made the beautiful sign for the table.

Well done to our raffle prize winners: Ms. O’Connor, Cara O’Sullivan and Séona Cunningham.
