Covid 19 restrictions have meant that we have had to put our usual Christmas fundraising events on hold and needed to come up with a novel way to raise money to continue to resource our school. Our current focus is the provision of a sensory room for our pupils. Research has shown that children need regular sensory input to help calm and organise their nervous system and a quiet space where all children, especially those with sensory needs, can go to regulate and relax has become an essential part of daily school life. We are a health promoting school and pupil wellbeing is central to all our activity. We have recently opened our new sports pitch at a cost of over €20,000 and now, more than ever, we need to continue to promote exercise & healthy living. For this reason, pupils and staff are delighted to launch this fundraiser. Staff have set their own targets for the run with distances from 5km right up to the marathon distance of 42km which will be taken on by three teachers , Carol Hassett, Aoife Percy & Niamh Ryan, on December 18th. The fundraiser will also see our pupils complete a mini-marathon over the month culminating in them running their final kilometre on December 18th.
