Student Council – St. Vincent de Paul fundraiser which raised €1,080

Thanks to our student council who helped to organise our St. Vincent de Paul fundraiser before Christmas. The boys were asked to wear a Christmas jumper or a Santa hat and donate money. We managed to raise €1.080 for this worthwhile cause.
