Well done to all of the girls involved in the Readathon, so much reading was done, and so much money was raised for a truly great cause!  We were very happy to welcome Sarah Eustace from Barnardos into the school today, even DumbleBear got in on the action! 🐻 She was delighted with the work the girls did to raise so much money for a fantastic cause. Sarah was presented with the cheque for €644, and in return we got a lovely certificate and thank you letter which we will be framing! 😍

There is also the option for anyone who wants (both staff and students) to bring in a book(s) in new or like new condition to donate to Barnardos for children in need. There will be a donation box in reception when we come back after midterm. β€πŸ“–

Another super exciting way that we will be celebrating is by having all first years and staff dress up as book characters on the day, and there will be prizes foe the best dressed! I can’t wait to see what everyone’s costumes are going to be! πŸŽ‰βš‘πŸŒŸ
