Focus Ireland

Transition Year students of Scoil Ruain Killenaule presented their substantial cheque of €2,045.00 to Cathryn O Leary of Focus Ireland on Wednesday May 9th. The students with Ms Cummins, organised and completed a sleepout in Clonmel on March 1st, as part of a Wellbeing Awareness Initiative and Class Acts fundraiser in aid of the homeless. ‘We learned a lot by sleeping out on the street from 8pm to 8am, and we are now much more aware of the difficulties encountered by the homeless, and hope our donation will help someone in this terrible situation’. Ms. O Leary was thrilled with the amount raised and praised their hard work in achieving the largest sum raised across the country within the Class Acts Initiative. A huge congratulations to all involved, and to all who generously sponsored the Transition Year students.
