On Thursday the 15th of December 2016 1w held a no-uniform day in aid of the Gavin Glynn Foundation. Two weeks before the event 1w were split into groups in CSPE class, each group having a different task. They worked together for the 2 weeks to advertise the event and get everything set up. They collected the money during break-time on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the event. Each student was asked to contribute 2 euro. A sponsorship card was left into the staffroom and some of the teachers supported the event too. A sum of 360 euro was raised for the Gavin Glynn Foundation.
On Thursday the 12th of January 2017, Emma Jones and Pat Rockett came in to thank 1w and they were presented with a cheque.
We would like to say thanks to all the teachers and students of Newtown School for their support and a special thank you to Ms Kelleher who assisted greatly and supported this event.
