A huge congratulations to the pupils and staff who participated in this year's “Dusk til Dawn” Fundraiser in aid of Pieta House. 53 students and 15 staff took part. Combined with a non-uniform day on the Friday, a whopping €4115.55 was raised in total. Maybe the incentive of Mr Greene shaving his head had something to do with it!
The evening kicked off at 9:00pm with a table quiz (and the much anticipated teacher’s round). This was promptly followed by an Apache Pizza Feast (which barely fit in the delivery driver’s Micra). Despite many food comas, the students stayed full of energy and participated in lots of activities during the night. From The Cube which tested student’s ability, to the Dodgeball Tournament against teachers which tested stamina, the students had no choice but to stay awake (well except for Kaya!).
The highlight of the night was of course the FIFA Tournament - well done to the champion Ethan Keogh. Overall the night was a huge success. Well done to the Lads and all involved.
A number of teachers promised to dress up as "good students", if the €3000 mark was reached and they duly delivered on their forfeit. Pieta House will visit the school in the next few weeks for the official presentation of the big cheque.
