TY students volunteer for the homeless

A number of students from Transition Year volunteered at the Coast & Castle fun run on Sunday 21st May.  The run was organised by St Andrew's parish and raised funds for two homeless charities; The Peter McVerry Trust and the Alice Leahy Trust.  Our students donned high-viz vests and stood on the route all morning, marshaling the runners and directing them where to go.  Without volunteers, fun runs like this cannot take place and we are very proud of our students for volunteering for such a worthy cause.  Well done girls!

As part of the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP), students must complete an Enterprise Activity to raise awareness and funds for a charity of their choice. This year, the 5th Year LCVP class selected DogsTrust as their chosen charity and held a hugely successful Cake Sale in the school on March 23rd. 

The students raised a grand total of €380 through the sale of cakes and travelled to DogsTrust in Finglas on April 7th to take a tour of the shelter and to present a cheque to Ms.Fiona Gregan, Education Officer with DogsTrust. A great day was had by all!

The LCVP class and Ms.Foley would like to thank everyone who supported their Enterprise Activity including Ms.Mc Donagh, staff members and students of MCS.
