Gala Dog Night both Enjoyable & Successful!

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Management, Staff and Parents/Guardians would like to say a big Thank You to our students, their families and the whole school community for their support of last week’s Gala Dog Night to raise funds for the school development fund. Click on this link to View More of the Photos

Due to the hard work of our committee and the range of revenue strands they pursued from Corporate Sponsorship of Races, to Buster Race draw, to a Raffle with excellent hampers and prizes,  a generous figure of approximately €27,000 was raised.  Allowing for costs, such as the prize fund, the final sum generated is in the region of an impressive €24,000!
