The School wishes to express it’s heartfelt thank you to a number of people and groups who have made this raffle and day a possibility.


Firstly, a sincere thank you to our Parents Council led by Ms. Clodagh Lawlor and Mr. Jason, Collins and their team of dedicated helpers who arrived into our school today to organise the bake sale.


Our Parents Council generously donated the PlayStation 5, and the sweet hampers for the raffle and organised and ran the delicious bake sale.

 A second big thank you goes to Mr O Reilly and his team of helpers in TYA. Mr. O Reilly and the TY Students did an amazing job managing and overseeing the selling of the raffle tickets and the organising the non-uniform day. Well done to Mr. O Reilly and TYA

 A final thank you to our students and parents for supporting the raffle and supporting the non-uniform day.


St. Patrick’s Classical School has a long tradition of looking after those who are less fortunate than many of us in our local community and especially at Christmas time 

 It was wonderful to see our students and their families supporting the three charities  – St. Vincent De Paul, The Women’s Refuge and Meals on Wheels . All fantastic local charities who to do great work.  An amazing grand total of €6055.00 raised for our 3 charities.
