The PTA Committee's main annual fundraiser held on 26th May was a terrific success in every way! Following some fun golf in idyllic weather, past parents - and pupils! - joined parents and staff as well as old and new friends for dinner and an evening of entertainment at Greystones Golf Club (as always, a great venue!).
Congratulations to the winning Golf team - The O'Brien Boys (led by dad, John, with Conor, Robbie and George) - and to the runners-up, led by veteran St Patrick's NS Golf Event organiser, Tim Hazelton!
As well as the social elements of the day, a whopping grand total of €8,770 was raised for annual projects funded by the PTA!!! While other events throughout the year target individual projects, this annual event supports resources and facilities to support the children's learning - whether on-line Literacy or Numeracy programmes, Music and PE support, maintenance and development of ICT, or special visiting speakers - as well as our on-going Library development, Partnership Programme, etc.
The day's events were organised by a super team - Wendy, Sinead, Lesley, Maura, and Eimear (see below) - and we owe them a huge 'THANK YOU'.
Their bubbly energy was infectious and contributed to this being a super event for all!!
