Last week, our 6th Class children took charge of organising a charity collection for Barnardos. We received a huge amount of donations from the families in St. Marnock’s NS who contributed presents, toiletries and much more for the charity. At the end of the week, 4 children from 6th Class along with Cabena from the Parent’s Association, Mr. Corkery and Ms. Phillips took a trip to Barnardos to hand over our school’s wonderful contribution.
Emma, 6th Class:
“Last Friday, Ms. Phillips, Mr. Corkery, 3 others and I went to Barnardos to give all the presents that the boys and girls brought in. We met 5 very friendly women who gave us a tour of the building. They had offices upstairs, a playroom downstairs as well as a kitchen where we all sat and talked. We then helped the women to bring in all the presents from the cars outside. We put all the gifts into their offices and by the end we couldn’t even walk inside because the presents covered the whole floor! After that, we talked about all the great work they do to help the families around Dublin, and how they will use our donations.”
