St. Paul's CBS
Each year around Christmas time in St Paul’s CBS a friendly rivalry emerges between 6th Year and TY students as they compete to see which group can raise the most money for the Central Remedial Clinic through their annual Santa Bear appeal. This year 6th Years were victorious as they collected the grand total of €1026. However, the TY students can hold their heads high as they raised a fantastic total of €996. As one student said, “The competition is just a bit of fun, a way to motivate us to do the best we can for the CRC. It’s great to be able to help others in a small way and between us we managed to raise over €2000.”
Brunner students also raised the sum of €348.08 for CASA. The Caring And Sharing Association is a voluntary organisation, established in 1981, whose goal is develop friendships and social outlets for people with disabilities through a variety of social activities. These include regular social events, holidays, respite breaks, and pilgrimages to Lourdes.
In the spirit of giving and sharing with others the 6th year students agreed to stage their own particular version of the Nativity Play while the School Choir took to Henry Street in Dublin, lending their angelic voices to the fundraising cause. Indeed, their efforts were of such a high standard that they appeared on a special Christmas edition of the popular RTE shoe ‘O’Gorman’s People’.
Well done to all involved!
