As part of their SESE Programme, Fifth Class planted lots of daffodil bulbs last October.  These bulbs were tended with loving care by the children over the winter months and the result was a  huge array of lovely daffodils in full bloom.  Fifth Class sold bunches of the daffodils to parents and friends of
St. Patricks' NS and were then able to make a donation to the Irish Cancer Society.  They also donated their unsold daffodils to the Irish Cancer Society for use on National Daffodil Day.   Pictured at the presentation are some ladies representing the Irish Cancer Society and some of the children from Fifth Class with their teacher, Ms. Eithne Molloy.
Congratulations and well done to everyone in Fifth Class!


6th Class were very proud to present a cheque for €1200 to the Cara Girls Rescue Centre.  This money was raised during their Jumble and Cake Sale on Friday, 17th February in our school. The charity were delighted with the donation which will be put to very good use. Congratulations to all in 6th Class and their teacher, Mrs Gavin who co-ordinated the whole day.

On Friday, 17th February, our class held a jumble sale and coffee morning in aid of Crumlin Childrens Hospital and Cara Girls Rescue Centre in Kenya.  Some of us came into school early to set our stall up. We had 10 stalls altogether and the coffee morning aswell.  There was a face-painting stall, a jersey stall, a cake and fruit cups stall, bric-a-brac stall, nail and face painting studio, book stall, dvd and games stall, a virtual reality stall and a toy stall.  We had sold raffle tickets. We all had our own job at the jumble sale.  Julia and Ellen were in charge of face-painting,  Dylan and Jaden sold the jerseys; Dawn, Mrs Fleming and I were selling cakes and  buns; Adam and Ms Jenkins were selling some healthy fruit cups; Anthony and Joshua were at the bric-a-brac stall; Emily Fleming and Eoin Corcoran were selling books; Noel and Peter were at the dvds' and games stall; Séan Corcoran ran the virtual reality stall; Cian, Conor and TJ were selling the toys; Holly, Ethan and Kamil were selling the raffle tickets and Fia, Emily Frazer and Séan Costello-Kelly were working at the coffee morning.  It was a very enjoyable day and we raised €2,366 for two great charities.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who donated items for sale, raffle prizes and also cakes etc.
Special thanks to all the parents who helped out on the day and especially in our coffee dock area.
The support of everyone who attended and contributed in any way is very much appreciated  by both Sixth Class and our whole school.
