Scoil Dara - Hosting It's First Trick or Treat for Temple Street Halloween Party on 25th October

The TY Community Care Students have put in a huge amount of effort to organise a spooktacular event for the 3rd Class students of Scoil Coca Naofa in Kilcock. We are however looking for help from the local community. All funds that are raised from hosting the party will go towards purchasing critical digital X-ray equipment which will play an absolutely crucial and life saving role. This party will help make miracles happen.


All donations for this great cause can be left at the front reception in Scoil Dara before Friday October 28th and remember every Euro can make a difference for the future of a sick child.


Thank you - Community Care Class 4A/4B Scoil Dara
