Resourcing our Pupils for the 21st Century

Our school is very proud of the quality of teaching and learning that takes place and we make every effort to ensure we have the best resources in place to support our teachers and pupils.

At present government funding does not sufficiently support schools to purchase enough of these resources.
Therefore if we do wish to have the best resources for our pupils, we need to fundraise.

This year fundraising is complicated by Covid-19 and we can no longer run our traditional cakes sales, sponsored events or bag-packing in shopping centers.

So this year we are going online for our main fundraising event!


The fundraiser will work as follows:

We are asking people to post a photo of themselves in primary school on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram Posts). 

Please tag your old school friends, your relatives and the school so we all get to see you!

In your post we ask that you include a link or reference to our Go Fund Me page. Here people can make a donation to this fundraising effort.

Parents can also donate through Aladdin Connect
– we have set up an ePayments option called 'Fundraising 2020' and here you can donate whatever amount you wish – every cent counts!

Our target is to collect €5000 and we hope you can help us achieve this. All the money collected will be spent on educational resources for the children.

We are hoping that every parent, grandparent, past pupils, local businesses and friends of the school will get involved by posting a picture and donating.

Win! - We have a couple of vouchers to give away and we will randomly select names from the list of those that donate. Note, you must donate to be in with a chance to win!

Our school makes every effort to keep costs low for parents. We have a book rental scheme and we do not ask for a voluntary contribution like other schools. So we are really hoping you can support us in as generous a way as you can and we thank you for doing so.

We look forward to having some fun along the way and hopefully you will enjoy sharing in the memories that an old school photo can ignite.

So here we go – Post a Photo – Tag some friends – Share the link – Donate!

Here is a picture of what we hope to invest in -

Over the past two years we have invested heavily to enhance our digital technologies here in the Presentation. We have purchased iPads and dozens of Apps, upgraded the specifications of our laptops and installed two 70 inch ActivPanels into classrooms. These ActivPanels are amazing pieces of equipment that replace the interactive whiteboards, allowing groups of pupils to write on them simultaneously and allowing us to screen-cast and run educational apps.
