Bake A Lot Makes A Lot 11

Nancy and her friends had a successful bake sale "Bake A Lot" on Saturday, 18th June when they raised over €750 for Barnardos, Barretstown and Botshabelo Township in South Africa. The group got a lot of support from family, friends, neighbours and many companies like DPL, The Horse and Hound in Cabinteely, Superquinn, Marks & Spencers, Art & Hobby Shop, Supervalu, Dubray Books, IMC, The Sweetest Thing, Tierneys Gift Shop and the girls in Notre Dame Junior School. Thanks to everyone who supported the team. You have helped less fortunate children. Well done.









Talented Dragons 11

Ali Hewson paid tribute to the project at the open day in the school last Friday, 27th May. She complimented the girls and said that she was overwhelmed by the work the girls had produced and the unselfish nature the girls had exhibited over the six months of the initiative.

Ali went on to say that "she would love her own children to be involved in such a project and that the girls were using trade to aid less fortunate children just like her ethical trading company, Edun.

Open Day 11 Reactions

Some of the girls' memories of the day

As soon as I got up in the morning, I smiled because I knew that it was going to be a great day ..    SK

I had to get our things ready for the day; float of money, a bin, tablecloth, moneybox, flyers, yellow t-shirt     LQ

I got in to the car with my Lucky Dip box. It was so big, it took up two places!    GC

We were selling things from bubbles to ice cream and all of us got sponsorship. Loads of children came to our stall, even the teachers!    LCB

The idea was to learn all about setting up a business and helping children too... MOC

We decorated our desks with sweets and toys and everything was ready...  HD

Emily's Sri Lanka Project

Emily Kennedy, a transition year pupil, visited the school on Tuesday, 5th April to receive a donation from the girls' open day which will be used for the Sri Lankan Orphanage. The girls gave €500 which was half the proceeds from the open day and a little bonus from the fund. Well done to the girls and Miss Doran and best of luck to Emily on her volunteering in Sri Lanka.

Open Day a Huge Success 11


The P5 girls did brilliantly at their Open Day on Tuesday, 15th March, 2011. After months of work on the business plan and contacts made to sponsors, the girls and their partners were all ready for their first customers last Tuesday. As you see from the photos, the girls had a lot of fun all the while learning so much about the business world and children less fortunate than them. The girls raised €566 which they will divide between the Sunshine Home in Leopardstown and an orphanage in Sri Lanka thanks to their contact with the inspirational Emily Kennedy. Well done to Miss Doran for all her prep work with the girls, to Miss Ward for her assistance and to everyone who sponsored and supported the projects.
