Remembering.

Remembrance Treetree

As it’s the month of November – traditionally the month we remember our loved ones who have passed away – our class 1 D have decided to create a remembrance tree which will be placed outside reception. The purpose of the tree is to remember people who have passed away, those who are sick, and anyone who you would like to think of in the lead up to Christmas.

Each tag will cost 50C and all proceeds will go towards the Peter McVerry Trust for homeless shelter in Dublin. Students from the class will go around selling the tags during Tutor class on Monday the 28/11/16

 

We would like to thank you in advance for your generosity and co-operation.
