We are delighted to hear this exciting news from St. Joseph’s Crossmaglen which involves a number of our past pupils…they are organising a fundraising event for a trip to Cambodia in February 2020, in which two teachers and 10 pupils are going to help build a home for a less fortunate family.
The 10 pupils travelling are: Cathal Doherty, Miceal Loughran, Michael O’Farrell, Fionn Downey, Abi McMahon, Aimee Murchan, Laura Hughes, Laura McAnulty, Claire Casey & Eimear Traynor.
They would appreciate support from the St. Mary’s, school community for their event. Details as below.
GAA Pre-Championship Chat Night in
St. Joseph’s High School, Crossmaglen
on Thursday 2nd May
Panelists: Joe Brolly, Aaron Kernan, Dan McCartan
MC: Benny Tierney
They will discuss this year’s Championship,
A great night to be had by all!
Tickets are on sale from: St. Joseph’s High School,
McEntee’s & Casey’s Shops, Crossmaglen.
Tickets are £12/€15 and all money raised will go to the upcoming trip to Cambodia with “Habitat for Humanity”.
Guess who is going home today with a cheque for £250… the jackpot in this week’s 50/50 draw. The winner was Riona, his little sister who at 10 months is our youngest winner to date! We hope she shares the winnings.
We predict that next week’s jackpot will be over £300, tickets will be on sale from Monday.
A reminder that tomorrow we are taking part in the Dorsey Archaeological Dig.
With regards to what to bring / wear:
We suggest pupils wear old clothes to school, we suggest they bring their school PE uniform in their school bags… if they get wet, they will then have something dry to change into when we get back to school.
We suggest lots of layers, as well as: hats, scarves and gloves, it is bitterly cold at present.
A waterproof coat is a must and if anyone has waterproof trousers we suggest they bring them.
Wellies or old shoes only please…whilst the site is pretty clean, with lots of footfall and wet weather it will quickly become churned up. A dry pair of runners and socks for changing back into on return to school would be a good idea also.
If the weather is truly horrendous there is a sizeable hut and alternative wet weather activities available, so we will be going even if the weather isn’t great.
Dinners/Lunches will be served before we leave at 11.30, we suggest everyone takes a break for later: a piece of fruit or a sandwich to carry with them in their coat pockets.
We are looking forward to learning lots about the work of archaeologists and more about the Dorsey itself.
