St Malachy’s High School Donates £11500


St Malachy’s High School’s Lenten Campaign was a huge success this year! Rosie Murray attended the school this week to receive the cheque for £10,000.

Many different events were held and the school are delighted to have raised £10,000 for this great cause which we are proud to have supported for over 40 years now. Some of the many events which took place were the annual Good Friday Fast which saw many of the dedicated senior students collecting for Trócaire.

The St Malachy’s Got Talent competition raised a huge amount and was well supported by the community. Form classes raised a huge amount through raffles and a separate staff raffle was organised. The school’s sincere thanks goes to the many local businesses who donated the many raffle prizes to support our campaign.

Pictured above are students from all year groups who helped with the fundraising with teachers Mrs Clare Murnin (Head of School Productions & Publicity), Mrs Sinead McNulty (CEIAG in charge of counting the funds raised), Mrs Maruna Hanna (Head of Senior School), Mrs Sharon O’Hare (School Bursar), Mrs Grace Duffin (in charge of counting the funds raised ), Fr McKinney (local parish priest), and Rosie Murray (representative from Trócaire).

The school has also been involved in further fundraising initiatives where Year 14 students have raised £1250 during the past year, which will  be used in Habitat for Humanity projects locally and abroad. Victoria Trimble, from Habitat for Humanity, is pictured below receiving the cheque from Sixth Form volunteers at St Malachy’s.
