6th class have been very busy in the past fortnight . After discussing the Refugee Crisis they all felt that they should do something to help. At the same time Dublin reached the All Ireland Football Final and as part of art the class were learning how to make headbands, wrist bands and mini Pom Poms in the Dublin colours.
The plan that they then hatched was to turn the art work into a business and that all money raised would go to charity. And so production went into full swing with the children plaiting multiple headbands and wrist bands for to be sold to the senior classes. (3rd to 6th)
A set of 4 flags was also donated to the cause by an uncle of one of the students and these were raffled at the end of the week.
Here are some pictures of our class hard at work
In total we raised a whopping 289 euro which we are delighted with. This money will be donated to two charities Oxfam Ireland who work with refugees in camps in Italy and Greece and GOAL who work in Syria with the people left behind.
6th class would like to thank the boys and girls in 3rd, 4th and 5th class who supported their efforts and brought in money to buy our wares.
