2 Euro Collection - The majority of parents have supported the 2 Euro weekly collection (every Monday) for many years. All monies collected are controlled and spent by our Parents Council to the benefit of all pupils - outings, transport, equipment, library resources, school celebrations, graduations etc. to mention but a few. The collection is dependent on the goodwill and generosity of the parents of the school. The collection can be paid each week at a cost of 2 Euro per family. It can also be paid yearly or termly. (This term there are 15 weeks to Christmas 15 x 2 = 30 Euro)
