Relay for Life Primary Schools Walk

Week 13th-17th May 2013

The school intends taking part in the ‘Relay for Life’ Rainbow Walk on Tuesday 14th May @11.30am in aid of the Irish Cancer society. Our walk will be a ‘Trek to the North Pole’!!!

On that date, the children do not wear the school uniform and are encouraged to wear as many colours of the rainbow as possible! All children and staff will walk from the school to the North Pole Bar and back!

We would encourage €1 per child or 50c per child where there is more than one child in the family. If any adults wanted to join us in our Trek they would be very welcome, especially if they wear rainbow colours also!
