Earlier this year, the PTA ran a highly successful recruitment drive for the 300 Club.
What is the 300 Club?
The 300 Club is a fund-raising scheme run by the PTA. Members each pay €10 per month. There is a monthly draw and three prize winners are picked to win prizes of €200, €100 and €50.
I remember hearing about that recruitment drive - how did it go?
It was a big success, with 30 new members signing up, allowing the PTA to add an extra €500 bonus prize draw at Easter, which was very exciting (especially for Liam Sweeney, our winner)!
Most importantly, a direct result of the increased membership is that €3000 has been raised for use on STEM projects at the school (that's Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths stuff...).
The aim is to build on the success of this year as we continue to work towards a fundraising target of €5000 annually from the 300 Club - all the while adding more fun and excitement for members through additional prizes.
