Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 25th November

Every year we choose the St Vincent de Paul charity for our Christmas fundraiser. St Vincent de Paul aims to fight poverty in every community throughout Ireland. They offer direct personal assistance to families with the help of local, community based volunteers. You can check their website here: https://www.svp.ie/home.aspx

In past years pupils and families were asked to make a food donation. This year we are asking you to make a donation which will be spent here in Letterkenny assisting families who are struggling as Christmas approaches.

The Late Late Toy Show will take place next Friday evening. To tie in with the excitement we will host our St Vincent de Paul fundraiser on that day- Friday 25th November. Friday will be “No Uniform Day”. Pupils may wear their own clothes to school on that day. If they have one, they may wear a Christmas jumper. They may wear something red, a traditional Christmas colour. They may wear their favourite football jersey. They are asked to bring their donation to school on Friday and all money collected will be donated to the St Vincent de Paul here in Letterkenny and will then make its way to families in need here in our community.

We will also hold an Art Competition in the school on Friday. All pupils will be asked to design a Christmas Jumper. There will be prize winners in each of our 21 classes.

This will be our last fundraiser prior to the Christmas Holidays.
