What a wonderful morning we had in Scoil Oilibhéir today! At 12 noon many of our parents gathered in the halla to see the Friends of Scoil Oilibhéir present a cheque for €13,463 to the school. Our Parents Association are always active around the school and are willing to help at every school occasion. Fundraising is a huge part of their work and we are so grateful for the vital part that they play in ensuring that our children have such a wonderful experience here in Scoil Oilibhéir. Of course, we are grateful too to all of our parents who provide ongoing support for our educational initiatives.
Today the parents had an opportunity to see where the monies raised have been, and will be , spent. We have purchased iPads for the children’s use and the FOSO funds helped us to purchase two charging/transporting trolleys for these iPads. We have build a Play area including a tractor tyre dragon and a fairy garden. Much of the money has been put aside to pay for a dedicated playground once Phase 2 of our building project is complete.
With the formalities of presenting the cheque over, the parents were treated to a mini concert with performances from our Junior and Senior Infant classes. As always the little ones brought the house down!!
