School Fundraising Walk

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our school fundraising walk 2021 will take place on Friday 12th November 2021 (weather permitting). Usually our ‘Sponsored Walk’ is our school’s best fundraising event. Typically we raise in the region of €5,000. Unfortunately, our Parents’ Association have been unable to hold events to fundraise for our school in Covid times. This has resulted in a substantial decrease in the monies available to spend on the vital resources and equipment enjoyed by your children. Unlike other local schools Good Shepherd does not charge a voluntary contribution fee.

This year we cannot allow your child to seek sponsorship for the walk. Instead, we are asking that each child gives a contribution of €10.00 (or more if you see fit) towards our ‘Fundraising Walk’. The money raised from this fundraising initiative will go towards the refurbishment of our school hall and stage area. We hope to purchase a wall mounted basketball retractable hoop for the hall to be used by all classes, invest in new curtains and further improve lighting and sound on our stage.

We appreciate that finances can be tight for families but in order to continue to deliver a packed and varied education to your child we need your help and support. In Good Shepherd NS we pride ourselves in providing extra curricular activates in the form of sport, violin, yoga, drama, well-being classes, in house here at no extra cost to your child. It is fundraising initiatives like our ‘School Walk’ that enables us to make this happen.

We thank you for your continued support.
