Schoolchildren take an innovative fundraising approach to Daffodil Day

The primary school children at St. Finian's national school in Dublin celebrated Daffodil Day with the creation of a 3D installation.
Forming the petals of the flower were the kids from 6th class to 3rd class while the children from 2nd class to juniors joined forces to create the stem of the daffodil.
The mother of one of the pupils at the Newcastle Lyons’ school said that it was her son who first broached the idea with his teachers.
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year,” Mary Mooney tells independent.ie.
“And my son wanted to do something to raise money for daffodil day so we contacted the school with our idea and they said ‘absolutely’!”
“We’ve had great fun, a lovely morning and hopefully we’ve raised a lot of money for the Irish Cancer Society.”
