 A group of fabulous fourth years have been regularly volunteering at Malahide junior parkrun; a free community running event for children aged 4-14 years.  The TY students have been marshaling, timekeeping and handing out finish tokens to the children who run the 2km event every Sunday morning.  The Run Director (pictured here with the students) then signs their forms and the students put their volunteering achievements towards their Bronze Medal Gaisce Award, which they will receive next year.

 Class 3.6 recently went on a guided tour of Newgrange and Knowth in Co. Meath.  They went inside the 5,000 year old passage tomb at Newgrange and experienced a light simulation of the winter solstice. They also climbed the roof of the larger passage tomb at Knowth and learned of the importance of this unique heritage site in Ireland. 

Food and clothing collection for the homeless

posted 25 Oct 2019, 09:26 by Fionnuala Timlin











For the last week, Class 4.2 have been working on a food and clothing collection for homeless people in Ireland.


At the moment, there are 10,338 people officially homeless in Ireland. When we did this exact same fundraising event last year, the figure was 9,527. In 2017, it was 8,160. Sadly, this problem we have in our country is getting worse and not better.


In response to this, for the week of the 21st to the 25th October, Class 4.2 asked students and staff in Malahide Community School to bring one item of food for the appeal. Once again, our school community was extremely generous and the response was very heart-warming.

 

The students also spent Thursday fundraising in the Pavilions Shopping Centre and Swords Central. They asked shoppers entering into Dunnes Stores, SuperValu and Penneys to buy one extra item along with their normal shop, which they could then donate into their trolley. The shoppers on this day were very kind and generous to our students. Some customers even went and bought the students donuts and offered to buy them lunch as a way of saying thank-you for their hard work.

 

Between what was gathered both in school, in the Pavilions and in Swords Central, Class 4.2 collected the following

·         128kg of Pasta

·         6,040 teabags

·         22kg of Rice

·         185 tins of beans

·         431 tins of other food items

·         104 jars of food

·         54 packets of noodles

·         304 packets of crisps

·         171 packets of biscuits

·         592 pairs of socks

·         190 pairs of gloves

·         135 hats

 

…along with plenty of chocolates, sanitary items, scarves, jackets, boots, underwear, blankets, water bottles and cuddly toys for children.  The goods collected from Penneys alone came to the value of €2,469!

 

All of the goods collected will go to the soup kitchen “Friends helping Friends.” This is a soup kitchen based on Westmoreland Street every Tuesday and Saturday night. They feed around 400 men, women and children on an average night. The people working for this soup kitchen depend entirely on donations like the one we are making. They do not receive any funding whatsoever. If you search for them on Facebook you will find their page and you can see for yourself the hard work they put do week in, week out.


Once, thanks again for support this worthy cause.
