Latest Laois Event: Rath NS Calendar a must-have for Ballybrittas households
Ballybrittas households urged to buy Rath NS Charity Calendar
In what has become a firm favourite for Ballybrittas households at Christmas , Ballybrittas Rath NS in Co. Laois has brought out its much anticipated charity calendar.
The calendar is the result of much hard work by the school, spearheaded by a dedicated committee, who were determined to find a sponsor to ensure all monies raised would go directly towards the purchase of equipment for a much needed outdoor learning centre for pupils .
They contacted former pupil ,Sean Hall, Managing Director of Manguard Plus who, true to form, didn’t hesitate to stump up the funds to cover the printing costs of the calendar for the second year in a row .
He says “We are delighted to support this initiative once again. I have great memories of Rath NS; It’s a small school with a big imprint. School sets down so many foundations for young people and I passionately believe that giving kids the best possible educational advantages sets them up for life, it is crucially important. I have great admiration for schools who do all they can to provide their pupils with the best start in life, educationally and personally. They are constantly looking out for opportunities that will enrich the school and provide a full educational advantage and putting this lovely calendar together is yet another example of the real effort that is synonymous with Rath NS”.
Tommy Fitzgerald , Principal of Rath NS says ‘On behalf of our entire school community, I wish to sincerely thank Sean Hall, a past pupil of Rath N.S., and everyone associated with Manguard Plus for their generous sponsorship. The funds provided will go towards the development of a new outdoor learning area. This will greatly enhance the learning experience for children in our school. We are extremely grateful.’
Copies of the calendar are on sale in Village Coffee, Donoher’s Service Station, Iosa Linn Playschool and Early Scholars Crèche, all in Ballybrittas, and directly from the school.
One calendar for €10 and two calendars for €18.
