CCS Fundraising Draw


This week Cashel CS launched its fundraising draw. Parents and guardians were encouraged to make every effort to sell as many lines as possible. Principal Mr. John Gallagher said “Every school know that students who participate in co-curricular activities have a marked improvement in their developments and grades. This can be attributed to skills they learn such as better time management to accommodate their hobbies and class activities, better organisational skills and a boost in their self-esteem. Skills learnt in clubs, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities can be applied in the classroom, as the students learn how to express themselves better. Please note that the funds raised are to assist financing school co-curricular activities such as Geography Week, Healthy Heating Week, Retreats, Student Celebrations, Awards, Guest Speakers, subsiding buses and student training in areas like Links and Student Council to name but a few .In general the funds raised will be utilised to finically support and subsidise the development of a whole school community”.


The draw features a first prize of €500, second prize of €250 third prize of €100 and three prizes of €50. Along with these prizes there is a promoter’s prize of €50 x 2 (Full Cards Only). Mr. Gallagher went on to say “Your continued generosity in supporting this annual fundraiser is appreciated and will enhance the quality of your child’s experience in Cashel Community School. Therefore we are appealing for your considered support of this year’s draw”.
