Letters to Santa

Such excitement today as our postman, Paidraic, collected letters for posting to Santa from junior and senior infants today. We are sure all the children are on Santa’s nice list!

Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Team Hope’s Christmas Shoebox Appeal is an annual campaign that delivers gifts straight into the hands of children affected by poverty. Often these shoebox gifts are the only gift that a child will receive at Christmas and the joy that they bring is incredible. Since 2010, with your help, we have delivered over 2.1 million Shoebox gifts to Vulnerable Children across the world.

We are taking part again this year, for all families who wish to donate a shoebox to this appeal. The leaflets will be sent out some time this week, or you can view a copy of the leaflet below, which can be downloaded from www.teamhope.ie. We would like shoeboxes to be returned to the school by Friday 5th November please, so they can be collected by/delivered to Team Hope, in a timely fashion.
