It was wonderful to see so many people from our school community - parents, teachers, staff, family members and friends all coming together, having a great time and raising funds for our school. Thank you so much to each and every individual who came along on the night and to those who couldn't make it but bought raffle tickets. Your generosity meant over €900 was raised for our school garden!
As always a great deal of planning and teamwork are required for these events and this would not have been made possible without the dedication of a small number of parents in our school community.
A massive thank you to Leona for organising the whole event. From liaising with St Mary's GAA Club in Saggart who kindly allowed us to use the venue free of charge, to the arduous task of preparing the wonderfully diverse quiz questions to then carrying out an amazing job as quiz master - assisted by Roisin and Amy on the scoreboard. To Joanne for doing a wonderful job coordinating the raffle and to the team of individuals who gathered prize donations from local businesses and beyond, designed quiz tickets and sold quiz and raffle tickets in the lead up to and on the night - in particular Elizabeth, Yani, Andrés, Anna, Anita, Georgina, Liz and Eliza.
HUGE congrats to The 'Trackers' for taking 1st place in the quiz with 'The Knackered Mams' and The 'Runners Up' coming 2nd and 3rd. The prize money was kindly donated by Mason Hayes and Curran Solicitors.
Well done to all the raffle prize winners - the generosity of those who donated was overwhelming!
