School Aid Romania
On 18h February, twenty four Year 13 students accompanied by Mrs Doherty and Mrs Short will be travelling to Brasov in Romania on the School Aid Romania visit.
Students include –
Daniel Leonard, Shane McNaughton, Pauric Donnelly, Jim Shortt, Ciaran Deasy, Michael Deasy, Stephen McKearney, Ryan Murtagh, Jordan Carr, Nicole Farrell, Aisling Taylor, Alannah McKee, Roisin Doyle, Sarah Lennon, Melissa Smith, Ciara Hawes, Iona Heavin, Sarah Hannon, Eimear Grimley, Aine Murra, Michaela Nugent, Megan Kelly, Aoife Loughran, and Lisa Murphy.
This project, which is such an important event in the school calendar, now runs annually. Our students visit orphanages, poor remote villages and hospitals in an effort to help improve the living conditions of the local people. Our students, supported by family and friends, raised money to help people in need in Romania. Some of the money raised will help prevent the need for some young people to live in orphanages, rather offering the opportunity to live in sheltered accommodation and becoming increasingly self-sufficient.
Our students are always fantastic representatives for the school on a trip that can often be very emotional for all involved.
Have a safe trip.
