Recently sixth year students from Bush Post Primary School organised charity fundraisers in the run up to Christmas.
The first of the fundraisers saw the sixth year home economics class organise a cake sale in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital. On Wednesday the 6th of December, third year students made buns for the event and the sixth year girls transformed the Home Ec. classroom with Christmas decorations. An amazing €750 was raised from selling hot chocolate, cookies and buns. The whole class was astounded and a giant cheque was presented to Anne Dunne, a teacher in the hospital’s school, who came on behalf of Temple Street.
The week before Christmas on Wednesday the 20th of December, sixth year student, Seána McGuinness, organised a Christmas jumper day for the entire school. Students came in dressed in Christmas jumpers, tops and ties. Money was collected at the front door my members of sixth year. From this fundraiser a further €730 was donated from the kind hearted students of Bush. The chosen charity this time was Féileacáin, the Irish for butterfly, who work to provide support for parents affected by the death of a baby during or after pregnancy.
The students are delighted by the generous response from the school in raising nearly €1500 in only two weeks and they would like to thank everybody for their support.
