Mission Week in Coláiste  – The Final Count!

Mission Week October 2019 has proved to be the most successful yet with a final count of 8,000 euro. This sum of money was raised  over the week through various fundraising events, such as “wacky accessories” day, cake sales, raffles, a no uniform day, a lunchtime buzz club run by chaplain Fr Jerry Carey, lunchtime class concerts, a copper race and many more. The proceeds from Mission week in Coláiste go to a mission in Ngutani Kenya, which is run by the Mercy sisters and which has close ties to the Coláiste. Sr Loreto, a former principal of Coláiste, worked for several years as principal in the Ngutani Business School for girls. This mission helps girls to get an education and a future and is a worthy cause for the funds raised during mission week each year.
