There was great excitement in Scoil Oilibhéir this morning as the children awaited our monster raffle. The Friends of Scoil Oilibhéir were very busy getting everything organised before the classes came to the halla for the draw. The children waited with bated breath as Mr O’Driscoll showed them the big box of tickets…the children had made a great effort to sell the tickets so all were eager to win. First prize of a laptop went to Ross Kavanagh and the other top prizes went to Vicki Lehane, Niall Considine, and Hazel O’Neill. Congratulations to these and to all our other winners too numerous to mention.
Of course the prize that was most eagerly awaited was of course a trip to the Planet for the class who sold the most tickets……this prize went to Miss O’Connell’s fourth class – well done boys and girls for putting so much effort into making our raffle a success!
Well done indeed to all the boys and girls who sold the tickets and to all the families who supported our raffle. All the proceeds will be invested in IT equipment for our children, and in the development of our school garden and play areas.
A big thank you also to all of our sponsors and especially to the FOSO who provided Easter eggs for a raffle in each classroom today. Happy Easter to you all.
