Pink Ribbon Day 2017

On Friday the 17th of February we celebrated Pink Ribbon Day by dressing in pink, face painting & nail painting. At break the whole school took part in a skipathon. The whole school also performed a dance in the yard to the music” Can’t stop the feeling” led by Ruth and 5th and 6th classes. All the classes took turns getting their nails and face painted by the 6th class pupils. Everybody made a huge effort and there were lots of cool costumes like swimsuits, boys dressed as girls, a pink mummy and many more . Amy’s class also had an Egyptian day and there were lots of pink Egyptians walking around the school! Everybody brought in a minimum of €2. And we sold pink ribbons during the week. In total we raised €820 which will be donated to Sláinte an Chláir and Breast cancer research institute in Galway.  All in all, it was a great day and many thanks to all who helped and participated.
