Generosity and Kindness at Christmastime

December is a busy month for High School pupils, who undertake various activities and challenges to raise money for worthy charities, like The Simon Community, Team Hope, Christian Aid, Concern and Focus Ireland, amongst others.  As part of 3RL's CSPE action project they raised money by raffling an Irish jersey signed by Paul O'Connell, raising over €450. Focus Ireland came to the school  to  talk to all Form 3 pupils on homelessness in Dublin, and pupils presented Focus  Ireland with the fundraising cheque.

Pupils have also been out and about singing carols and raising money for The Simon Community and Christian Aid.  A diverse group of pupils and teachers gathered together to sing and share the spirit of Christmas among the shoppers at Dundrum.   Next week, Form 4 will undertake their annual  Helen Kane Memorial Christmas Challenge, for St Luke's Hospital and Barnardo's Children's Charity.  We wish them all the best with that.
Thank you to everyone who has helped raise  money for charity, by taking part, or by giving financial support.
