There will be a Liberty Clothing collection next week (exact day TBA) so why not use the weekend to clear out your wardrobes and fill up some bags for the school? Clothing, shoes, curtains, towels and bedding accepted. Every bag collected raises much needed funds for the school and goes towards the rehab charity. Green collection bags available outside the office or simply fill a black bag. Thank you everyone.
April is Autism Awareness month and we will be holding a dress up in blue day on Friday 22nd April to raise awareness of Autism in our school community. In the school re-cycling area we have a collection box for old mobile phones. We collect used mobile phones and exchange them for great technology gifts for the school, while also helping Irish Autism Action raise much needed funds to assist.
As advised in our March newsletter, our Green Schools Committee has organised a Re-Cycle A Bicycle event and full detals have been sent home to every parent. Here is how it works ……. Problem Do you have any unused, unloved children’s or adults’ bikes in a garden shed or garage? Perhaps some have been outgrown, others forgotten about? Are they in reasonable, useable condition? Solution Please help us to make.

The Liberty Clothing Collection was a fundraising initiative of our Parent’s Association in 2015 and it was so successful that we have made it a regular event with regular clothing collections throughout the school year. Liberty Recycling organises collections of unwanted clothing through schools around the country in return for a contribution to school funds. The scheme fits perfectly with our environmental awareness programme, particularly as we are such an active Green.
