This year we will be holding our Daffodil Day event on Friday March 26th, 2021.
Daffodil Day is a day for us all to give hope to people affected by cancer. Funds raised during Daffodil Day are used across the country and donations ensure the Irish Cancer Society can continue to provide free services, such as the Freephone Support Line, Night Nursing Service, counselling, and so much more. Together we can ensure that no one has to go through cancer alone.
The event will be a virtual event for those continuing with their online learning (1st Year – TY).
We are asking these students to wear yellow on Friday March 26th and make a donation if possible, to the school's online fundraising page. We hope to capture some pictures of our virtual classes on the day; however, students are more than welcome to send on pictures (to form tutors or to Ms McKay) of themselves (and their family if they wish) wearing yellow on Daffodil Day.
5th & 6th Years are invited to wear a yellow t-shirt or jersey with school trousers and shoes, and to purchase and wear a daffodil pin for €3 on Friday March 26th (purchase and any other donations can be made via the school's online fundraising page). Pins will be available outside the library in the morning, and in the dining hall at morning break and lunch break.
