Mind the G.A.P. performance for all classes highlighting development themes of food security, fairtrade, child labour and climate change
Following on from our very successful Christmas shoebox appeal last year we are doing a variation of it this year in partnership with the Shoebox Appeal run by Cork Penny Dinners. These showboxes are distributed to children in need in the Cork area. You will have recevied a letter explaining this in detail. We collected a total of 106 shoeboxes which we delivered to Cork Penny Dinners.
We also propose to organise a Christmas jumper day in aid of Cork Simon community prior to Christmas. We raised €450 from our Christmas Jumper day in aid of Cork Simon.
