Brendan’s Boys’ School celebrates its 50 years on its current site this school year. Up until now our school didn’t have a hall where we could all assemble. Despite numerous applications, the Dept. of Education has refused to fund the project. The Board of Management decided that it is in the best interest of our pupils to go ahead and build this much needed hall itself. The entire cost of the build has to be raised through local fundraising. St. Brendan’s Boys’ School caters for boys from 1st to 6th class. There are 220 pupils in our school who will greatly benefit from the provision of this much needed facility, as well as the future generation of boys who will be part of our school.
How you can help
The estimated cost of the project is €200,000. We have already raised a small portion of that through various initiatives this year and in previous years. Since the beginning of the year we have been asking parents and those connected with the school to contribute €250 towards the school building fund. The school can also claim tax back on that money meaning your contribution goes even further towards achieving our target of raising €200,000. For further information on how this works, or to donate, please contact the school or members of our Board of Management.
