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.
