Partnering Children on their Developmental Journey

Helping the Homeless.


For the last few weeks, we all have been busy collecting items such as toiletries and clothing for P.A.T.H. (Portlaoise Action to Homelessness). We filled several boxes which we handed over to 2 volunteers from P.A.T.H. today. Jacinta, from the Parents’Association, who had organised the initiative on behalf of the Parents’Association,  was on hand today to welcome the volunteers to our school and to wish them all the best as they continue their good work. It was a fitting start to the Christmas season!
