End of an Era

A special thank you to all the pupils, families, staff and supporters of the project over the last nine years since Notre Dame Junior School took over the reins of the project in 2009. Many less fortunate children locally, nationally and internationally have been assisted in such a practical way and the Notre Dame girls have enhanced old skills and learnt new ones along the way. Thank you to all the Notre Dame staff who have assisted and led the school based project over the years especially Steph Doran, Helena Hughes and Claire Kelly. You have contributed to a better world and encouraged a creative exciting entrepreneurial learning environment. Well done to you!


The Children Helping Children Project has been running for the past 22 years since its inception in 1995 in CBC junior School under the guidance of Ken King, class teacher and project founder. Its success in instilling good values and enhancing skills of young people is equally as important as the €270,000 plus raised over the 22 years for less fortunate children. 


The future of the project is down to you if you happen to be reading this and have responsility for school or community projects. Please get in touch if you would like some support in getting a project off the ground etc. Please go to the contact link of this site.
