Burrow School Parents Association

Halloween Scary Movie Night

Our spooky Halloween movie night takes place in the school hall on Freaky Friday 19th October. Don’t forget to dress up and bring along your carved pumpkin – a special prize will be on offer for the best pumpkin (make sure you label your pumpkin so we know who has won)! Entrance is €5 for kids, or €10 per family, which includes popcorn and other goodies. We will also be selling hotdogs at €1 and cakes for 50c each. Parents are more than welcome to stay for the movie and can enjoy tea/coffee with cake for just €1. The kids’ Halloween art will be on display and can be taken home that evening too.

The times are as follows:

6pm-7pm: Junior Infants – 2nd Class – Scared Shrekless

7pm-8.30pm: 3rd Class – 6th Class – The Corpse Bride

As usual we need some lovely helpers! Firstly, to bake some cakes – please let Cliodhna know on 0868512991 if you can bake (cakes can be left in the kitchen that morning). And secondly to help with supervision – we need at least three parents from 4th, 5th & 6th class to help supervise the second film; classes that don’t have adequate supervision won’t be able to attend. If you’re in a position to supervise, please text Adrienne on 0872029102 by Tuesday 16th October. See you all there for some scary fun!

2017 News Roundup

The school year is flying by and we have already gotten off to a busy start on the PA. We welcomed some new members at our AGM in HYC on September 27th and a brief outline of this years fundraising goals were given. This year we are working towards raising funds for the school’s garden rejuvenation project which is planned for early next year.

The first of our fundraisers began with the clothes recycle drive. We gathered over 1.7 tonnes which earned a whopping €860. We plan to do another one in March in anticipation of the summer clothes coming out and winter clothes being put away!

Our annual Christmas Fair in December was a roaring success. We added some new ideas with a kids craft room and a “Gift Room” which was stocked with beautiful crafts made be several PA members. It in particular proved very successful. We raised over €7k between the fair and the raffle. A huge thank you to all who volunteered their time, donated and attended on the day.


Aqua Dinner

Our annual Parents Association dinner took place in Aqua on Monday 24th and was a huge success. This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year and we are delighted to say we made €4k for the school between ticket sales and our raffle.

We would like to thank all who attended and supported the event. Aqua as always were amazing. The food was fantastic and their staff were so helpful before and during the event. Jus De Vin supplied the prosecco at a reduced cost. We were entertained throughout by the fantastic Pat Coldrick on guitar. Desserts were a combination of delicious ice-cream sponsored by Yummies and a few parents who baked up a storm. Thanks Karen, Emily, Rachel and Scott! Goodie bags were supplied once again by Mc Cartan’s Pharmacy Sutton – thanks to Audrey there.

A special thank you also to Finn Elmore for working hard all year sourcing prizes.

Finally a big thank you to all the local businesses who sponsored prizes for the raffle. We appreciate the support throughout the year.
