WHY FUNDRAISING?

Last year the school introduced interactive whiteboards to some of the classrooms. These SMART boards are providing the children with a 21st century interactive learning experience. The school would like a further 4 Interactive smart boards to be purchased at a cost of €3,300 each. The goal of the parents Association is to help to raise the funds to facilitate this purchase.
