Dear Parent/ Guardian,
I wish to express sincere gratitude to you for the generousity you have demonstrated in assissting your child /children to raise funds for school through our Sponsored Walk event. Funding for schools is constantly under attack and does compromise our ability to make the best possible provision for pupils. Fund raising makes a real difference to what we can achieve, following last year’s event we were able to: convert our Staff Room into a “Sensory Room”, create a “Sensory Trail” along the Main Corridor, convert a store room into a “Nurture Room” and subsidise several school trips.
Given the “cost of living” circumstances we all find ourselves in, the sum of £2, 739 and €295.40 (to date), is a remarkable amount raised.
We hope to establish a dedicated play area with a wooden climbing frame for our younger pupils and to coninue to subsidise the cost of planned school trips.
Finally, we are always humbled and grateful for the presents and tokens, Staff of St Mary’s receive at Christmas time but maybe this year you might want to consider those who may be in more need.
