On the 3rd of May, 2012, Sylvia Katete Gavigan visited P5 on behalf of C.E.D.F. This stands for

Children's Educational Development Fund and Sylvia is its founder.

We presented Sylvia with €500 from our first selling day in March.

The money will be used to plant crops &, provide school lunches.

At the moment, there are 80 pupils in a class and more than two to each desk.

Sylvia showed us a slide show of the clinic/hospital, school & classrooms and the crops they grow.

We are very proud to be helping less fortunate children.
