May Open Day 2013

The following are the highlights of the class of 2012/2013 on the project they undertook with their class teacher, Mrs. Gumisiriza, and mentor, Ken King.

Overall the girls raised €4000 for less fortunte children in Ireland and abroad and donated money from their entrepreneurial skills to

Down Syndrome Ireland,

National Children's Hospital, Crumlin,

 & Rainbows Worldwide. 

A big thank you to the customers; the children, staff and families in Notre Dame

& to our very supportive parents and generous sponsors. 


  1. My highlight was when CHC actually started because of all the emotions...I was feeling such happiness, nervousness and excitement. I couldn't wait for it to start!
  2.   I was very happy to be helping children who are less fortunate than we are. It's the best feeling ever!
  3.   I'd like to think that all our hard workd was for a really worthy cause....and it was. 
  4.   In Korea, there's not much chance to do this type of work. I have learned so much and now I will bring it back to Korea. 
  5.   I loved delivering the pizzas from class to class because everyone was so happy to see us.
  6.   My highlight was meeting Kathleen from Down Syndrome Ireland.
  7.   I enjoyed getting the produce, setting up the stalls and selling to our customers. 
  8.   My highlight would be meeting Ali Hewson and Olly from Olly's Little Heart Appeal.
  9.   I enjoyed working with my partners and learning to share the workload. 
  10.   Everyone was really happy with the money we raised for the different charities. 
  11.   It was such a fun project...I enjoyed presenting the cheque to Hannah from Rainbows and being interviewed by 4FM. 
  12.  I felt independent, self sufficient and happy. I enjoyed myself immensely.
