Spirits were high in Colaiste Chiaráin on Friday 15th Dec as perfects stepped up in raising money for the local St Vincent De Paul. In preparation for the event the students invited the local conference of SVP to come in and explain about the work they do in supporting the local community. Yvonne McGivern and Paul Carey visited and gave an insight into the work undertaken by SVP in Leixlip. President of the conference, Mrs McGivern pointed out that all funds raised in Leixlip are deployed in Leixlip. This greatly impressed the students and so they set about bring this message to the school community by visiting each class.
The fundraiser was driven by our perfects who’s enthusiasm was infectious and Santa turned up in a number of different classes! The Christmas spirits was alive and well with many students going to great lengths to dress in Christmas attire, while all the time keeping in mind the very worthy local charity they were supporting. SVP representatives will return early next week for the presentation of the funds raised just in time for Christmas.
