The School Lotto is our school fundraiser that we use to buy much needed educational resources for the children. Our School Lotto aims to raise much needed funds and benefits EVERY child in the school.
Lotto envelopes are sent home every Thursday and should be returned to the class lotto leaders with €2 on Friday morning. You can enter the draw as often as you like.
Thanks to Liz, our school secretary, who prints the envelopes each week and to Mr. Ryan who supervises the draw and checks the envelopes every week. The class that sells the most envelopes in the run up to Christmas will win a FREE trip to the cinema on Thursday 18th December. The winning class will be announced at assembly. So keep selling those lotto envelopes!
Each week, as well as being in with a chance of winning the €1,000 jackpot, we pick two “€25 Lucky Dip” winners. The child that sells these “Lucky Dip” envelopes also wins a”€5 Sellers Prize.
So far, 6 people have won the €1,000 prize.
Many thanks to everybody for supporting the School Lotto- your €2 goes a long way and is really appreciated.
So far the funds have been put to good use:
- we have been able to purchase a full set of guided reading books for the school worth over €7,000 which will help the children to become more competent and confident readers.
- We recently purchased €1,500 worth of P.E. equipment from funds from the School Lotto.
- We purchased a Public address Sound System for the school hall.
- We purchased 10 iPads and charging trolley
- We purchased 10 Chromebooks
- We purchased 10 outdoor benches to enable the pupils to have an outdoor classroom during Covid-19.
