Fundraising for our Special Needs Class
Christmas is a time of giving and that is just what happened this year. Three wonderful fundraising events were held in aid of our Special Needs Class. A grand total of €2000 was raised for Rang Naomh Eoin our Special Needs Class.
Santa in Trag.
Santa came to Tragumna before Christmas. This event raised €1000 for the Special Needs Class in St Joseph’s GNS. These funds were raised by the McCarthy family. The McCarthy family would like to thank The Skibbereen Eagle for hosting the event. They would like to thank everyone who donated spot prizes, who brought their children to the event and who donated so generously on the day. A special thanks must go to Santa and his wonderful Elf!!
St Joseph’s GNS wish to thank the McCarthy family for organising this event. €1000 will go towards supporting the children of our Special Needs Class.
Johnstown Heritage Committee.
Last October the Johnstown Heritage Committee raised money for charities in their locality. They included St Joseph’s GNS Special Class again this year as a worthy recipient and donated €600 to support the class. St Josephs would like to thank everyone involved in the event. A special thanks to Anne O’Sullivan.
Skibbereen Rowing Club
Every year the Skibbereen Rowing Club organise the Christmas day swim at Tragumna for the Special Classes of St Joseph’s GNS and St Patrick’s BNS.
Thank you to Skibbereen Rowing Club for organising the event and huge thanks to all the swimmers who took the plunge on Christmas day for our Special Needs Classes. Both schools will receive a cheque for €400.
