Student Council Shoebox Appeal

The Student Council along with all of the pupils of Scoil Mhuire have been very busy for the last couple of weeks. The student council (Lilly, Mikey, Anna, Seán, Sarah and Faye) along with Ms Tinnelly decided that they wanted to do something that would help those who are less fortunate than us at Christmas time. We did some research and decided to take part in a 'Shoebox Appeal'. We wanted to help people in the surrounding areas. As a whole school, we gathered lots of amazing toys, stationary, clothes, hygiene products and some WOW gifts for our Shoeboxes. The Student Council then worked very hard to sort all of the items into appropriate boxes based on gender and age. We wrapped and sent our 37 beautiful heartfelt Shoeboxes off to lots of children in need!
