Fundraising events up to now include:
Mini Marathon (irunforolafs) - A fun day our for our mums who combine a bit of fitness with lots of chats and a social event afterwards
Skipathon - We held our first Skipathon in 2014 and it was the biggest Fundraiser we had that year. We had a super atmosphere in the school and both pupil and teacher feedback was excellent. Our resident DJ pumped out the tracks for us and plenty of calories were shed!
Family Bingo - a lovely way to pass a Sunday aftenoon with Family and school pals. Next Bingo event is planned for Feb 2016.
School Disco - Friday nights will never be the same again. Attendance at our fully supervised disco for 3-6th class has been excellent. Kids really enjoyed the music, lights, atmosphere, and of course the tuck shop.
Second Hand Uniform Sale - Waste not want not - a great way to pick up some bits and pieces to keep our kids dressed for school .
A lot of work but brings in a lot of money. It requires a lot of organizing and time. Begging letters and calling to local businesses is very important for prizes for wheel of fortune and raffles.
Two have been held; the most money is made from the selling of ads in the programme. Additional monies were made on a raffle, and ticket sales.
We have been running this for a number of years; using the GAA club grounds it is a fun day for everyone. Some of the teachers have come along to help out which has been great. We give one card per family.
This was replaced by the pentathlon; the walk route was to the church and back.
We have sold school calendars for the past few years, they usually are popular we printed 300 each time.
This is a new venture and was very successful and fun for the kids to make.
This was done once before and it to happen again in Tesco Dundrum Town Centre on Sunday 10th June. Children were encouraged to help out by giving homework passes as rewards for helping.
This was not a great success, complaints that people felt pressured to buy their child’s picture. Financially this only made money as the stands collapsed and we didn't have to pay for their hire.
A fun thing to do but needs to have costs sponsored otherwise would not make money.
