Knockanean NS is very lucky to have had a very active and enthusiastic fundraising committee which has worked tirelessly to raise funds for our school during 2011-2012 when the newest part of our school was being built..
In 2011 work commenced on a four classroom extension – replacing the exisiting prefabs in use. We were fortunate to have funding from the Department of Education for 3 of the classrooms. The extra building work was funded by parents and friends of the school through our fundraising activities. In all, over €100,000 was raised in 12 months from September 2010 to September 2011. A fantastic achievement in the current economic climate.
Our fundraising work will continue as the school has been listed for a large scale extension in 2014-2015.
The current fundraising committee is: Mick Collins, Aoife Cosgove, Caroline Purcell, Mary McGovern.
The contact phone number for the committee is: 083-1119470 or contact the school on 065-6840088
