St Joseph's CBS host coffee, cake and concert

St. Joseph's CBS Parents' Association and staff held their annual Coffee, Cake and Concert morning on the 3rd April. It was a huge success and raised €2,134. All proceeds will go towards equipment for the Senior Infant classrooms, P.E. equipment and free buses for swimming for the children.

There were almost 200 people in attendance. They enjoyed delicious sandwiches, buns and cakes which were all sponsored by Glanmore Foods. Entertainment was provided by Mr.Mulroy's exceptionally talented School Band, Ms.Dillane's Class, Ms.Lamont's class, Ms. Durnin's Class, Mr. Carberry's Class, Mr. Keane's Class, Ms. Gregory's class, Ms. Maher's class and Mr. Mulroy's class. There were solos by Anish Mdugu, Jamie Rock, Peter Connor, Ronan Anthony Carroll, Dylan Kelly, James Mc Cole, Nathan Yesudas and Jake Kermode.

The Parent's Association and Annette Horan organised a selection of prizes for Raffle. These included a very generous hamper sponsored by Glanmore Foods, sparkling afternoon tea sponsored by The Scholar's Hotel and O'Connor Sutton Cronin Consultant Engineers made a generous cash donation to the school.

The success of St. Joseph's Coffee, Cake and Concert morning was a result of the hard work of the: Parents' Association, the many parents who volunteered to help on the day and the committed staff. Also, we wish to thank all the children and parents who baked and bought cakes. It was a wonderful success and embraced by the local community.
