Cake Sale, this Friday 5th of February 2016 - Rang a 1

A big thank you to the parents and children of Rang 4 who raised €353 in their December cake sale and to Rang 2 who raised €331 in their January cake sale. Míle Buíochas to both the bakers and the buyers

As you can see those very important €1's on cake sale Fridays mount up to a large amount of money for the school funds.

On that note, as we don't do cake sales during Lent,  our last cake sale until after the Easter holidays will take place this Friday 5th and will be hosted by rang 1. So as normal can all children bring in at least €1 to buy a bun or cake. There will be a nut free policy for all the baking and there will be gluten free cakes available.

Many thanks for your continued support.
