Halloween Fundraiser


A huge thank you to eveyone who supported the Scoil San Eoin Halloween fundraiser on Sun 29th Oct. A great nite was had by all who attended and it was great to see everyone in costumes and having such fun. Thank you to all the BOM members especially Martina Wynne who headed up the organising and John Cleary for his amazing DJ performance (and impromptu dance!!). Thanks to Bernard Brennan who led the selling of raffle tickets, and all those who sponsored prizes on the night. Thanks also to the parents, Cathy Nolan, Karen Tiernan, Laura Jones, Nicole Keogh, Charisse Van Kan and of course all the well dressed Dads, who helped in setting up, cleaning up, organising games and distributing sweets (in their unique way!). A great team effort meant that the night was a great success and fun for all!. We are very grateful to the pupils who raised much needed funds for the school through the sponsorship cards, and these, combined with the raffle on the night, netted a total of 1450 euro. Thank you to all involved and we hope to do it again next year.





PJs for Polly Day - In aid of First Responders

A fantastic day was had on Fri 27th when all the pupils dressed in 'scary' PJs to get in the Halloween mood, but also to raise funds for the local First Responders and the equipment that they need to maintain. Pauline Nolan came with Peggy the car, and set up the First Aid equipment so the pupils could practise their skills. In total 114 euro was raised. It was also a good way of getting recognition for all that Pauline and the other First Responders do on a volunteer basis and also to say thanks for sharing her knowledge with the senior pupils each year. We hope to have Pauline back again to run her usual classes later in the year.
