In response to the fundraiser yesterday Wednesday 19th November in PCS for the “live life” foundation, a grand total of €363 was raised. Those involved in the organisation of the fundraiser would really like to thank the musicians, singers, collectors and all of the students and staff for their generosity and support.
Students from Portmarnock Community School who took part in a traditional music master class yesterday along with their tutors Ciaran Tourish and Dr. Martin Tourish. During the class our students had the opportunity to explore aspects of style, interpretation and arrangement in Irish traditional music with leading professional musicians. Many thanks to Ms. McGlynn who organised the event.
Writing Week starts its story on Monday 17 November. Students and staff will be participating in various activities designed to promote the importance of writing skills as part of our Literacy Programme. Events include a Limerick writing competition; workshops with poet Colm Keegan; a visit from buskers on behalf of the Donal Walsh Foundation encouraging lyric writing and a Drop and Write session.
Donal Walsh, the Kerry teenager who touched so many lives when he came to prominence through his writings and subsequent appearance on Brendan O’Connor’s ‘The Saturday Night Show’ is being honoured by his native county. Donal, who fundraised tirelessly while battling Cancer has now had the Donal Walsh #Livelife Foundation set up by his family in order to bring forward his causes of providing age appropriate teenage facilities in hospital and hospice centres as well as promoting his anti-suicide message. The #Livelife message. The Enterprise Society of DCU are doing their best to carry on this message and raise vital funds through their fundraising events.
Past pupil of P.C.S and DCU student Ciaran O’Reilly and fellow student Padraig Boyle, are organising a fundraising event in the school on Wednesday the 19th of November in conjunction with Writing Week. Students will be visiting classrooms and performing music in a busker style fashion and performing in the Assembly Hall at break time to raise money for the Foundation. Your generosity for this very worthy cause will be greatly appreciated.
