This year our school took part in the MS Readathon. The aim of the MS Readathon is to encourage children to engage with reading and to take enjoyment out of the worlds they delve into whilst at the same time raising funds for MS Ireland. The children learned about Multiple Sclerosis and how it impacts the lives of people in Ireland.
Katie and Síofra’s fifth classes, Sally’s fourth class and Róisín and Marcella’s third classes took part in the MS Readathon. The children in these classes spent one full month (from the 11th of October to the 11th of November) reading as many books as possible and collecting sponsorship money for MS Ireland. All classes were very enthusiastic and engaged wholeheartedly with all aspects of the MS Readathon.
We were delighted when we took the final tally of sponsorship money collected, which amounted to €2,378.29, all of which was sent on to MS Ireland to help all those who suffer with Multiple Sclerosis.
We are so proud of all the children who took part in the MS Readathon. All certificates and prizes will be awarded in February 2020. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donated money to this very worthy cause.
