Social Justice, Active Citizenship and UN Sustainable Development Goals  

The Student Council held a Concern Fast on Friday 14th December to raise awareness and money for Concern. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty and hunger in the world today is core in this endeavour. The Fast proved to be really successful! Student Council were aiming to raise €1000 but easily raised more - €1480 in total. Sincere thanks to all those who participated and raised sponsorship for this worthy cause. Thanks too, to Ms Kenny for helping to organise this fundraising event. 

Students have made a great contribution to the non-perishable food collection for Mitzvah Week as part of our school's contribution to our local community and the charity Focus Ireland.
