A Portlaoise College Christmas 

On 9th December Portlaoise College held its first annual Christmas Day in aid of Crumlin Children’s Hospital. There were numerous events going on during the day such as:

Christmas Market: Students from 1st year and TY sold various wonderful items that students, staff and parents purchased at great prices. This was run as a business enterprise activity where students learned about costs, profits, marketing and product presentation.

Santa’s Grotto: Over 300 students from Junior, Senior and 1st class at Scoil Bhride National School and the Gaelscoil Phortlaoise got to meet Santa with each child receiving a delicious treat baked by our Home Economics department.
