‘Who wants to be a Thousandaire’ Fundraiser – 8th of November

As you may have heard, the school is running “Who wants to be a Thousandaire” night at the Castletroy Court Hotel on November 8th. This is a new fundraiser which is undertaken to allow us upgrade our facilities including the pitches, and to financially support the school musical.

The show will be a fantastic family night that is suitable for all ages.  We are asking that you make this a night for your family to attend and enjoy with us. Family tickets (admit 4) are available for just €60. If you cannot make it a family night, we are asking that you would consider purchasing one €25 ticket to support our endeavours. All prize money won on the night goes to ticket purchasers regardless of who plays for them so you could still be a winner even if not attending.

Our fundraising target for the night is €40,000 which will require the sale of just under 200 tickets. We are very hopeful that you can get us there.

Tickets are on sale all week from the school office and can be bought at lunch time by students from our ticket sellers.

Thank you for your anticipated support.

Members of our wonderful ‘pay it forward’ student leaders group were on hand to help on the night.
Ronan O’Mahony, Niamh Mulcahy, Tommy O’Donnell, Ciara Neville and Neil Cronin help Padraig Flanagan launch the show.
