On the 22nd of December Padraig 5 hosted a breakfast morning for all fifth and sixth year students in aid of Novas. This is a voluntary organisation which works with disadvantaged children, adults and families especially those who are in danger of becoming homeless or are presently homeless in the Limerick area.
In preparation for this, we contacted Jim Flavin Butchers and SuperValu who generously donated food and drinks to us to serve to the students and teachers who helped this worthy cause by taking part in the breakfast morning. The sausages, pudding and rolls were then prepared by Padraig 5 members, Ms.Hanley and her Home Economics classes.
The day had a Christmas theme including a colours day, with students and staff wearing Christmas jumpers. We were also entertained by Christmas music throughout the morning. We even had a special visit from Santa and his elves.
We would like to thank Chis O’Connor, a Limerick Novas representative who visited during the course of the breakfast morning to make us all aware of the amazing work that this organisation carries out for the homeless and people in need in the area.
In total €360 was raised for an amazing cause. We would like to thank all the fifth and sixth year students, as well as the teachers, for donating €2 each to this deserving charity.
