The Golden Festival Committee has asked for donations of bottles for the bottle stall. These bottles can be anything from water, perfume, alcohol or soft drinks. Any donations can be left into the school or given directly to Evelyn Hally. As an incentive, there is a voucher for each class to be raffled for a McDonald's Happy Meal. One ticket per bottle with names on the back will be put into a special box so the more bottles brought in then the more chances to win. The draw for the voucher will take place on Tuesday, June 20th.
Junior and Senior Infants have been busy in the school garden recently planting, watering and weeding. They are looking forward to returning after the holidays for the harvesting of their crops.
