79 pupils in St Luke’s NS, O’Mahoney’s Avenue raised over €8k to be donated to the renovation of eight vacant houses at Kingston College. These renovated houses will accommodate at least eight Ukrainian families.
This initiative was a culmination of the student’s Lenten Project – to reach out to others. They choose to support the people of Ukraine by arranging a sponsored walk and a school breakfast. The students were encouraged and guided by school staff and supported by their parents.
The staff of St. Luke’s National School thank the main breakfast sponsors, The Address Hotel and O’Mahony Brothers Fruit & Veg.
The principal, Ms. Jacqueline Collier, commented:
We agreed with Diocesan secretary, Billy Skuse, that Fifth & Sixth classes would visit Mitchelstown in May and help plant a garden at one of the renovated homes. This will provide the pupils with an opportunity to see, first hand, what their donation has contributed to. Congratulations to everyone for this amazing achievement.
