Team Hope 2017
Once again, St. Mary’s Boys National School is enormously proud to support the annual Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal.
This year, thanks to your unwavering generosity, we collected our highest amount so far in our 14 year tradition of supporting this wonderful initiative-278 boxes!
On Friday, 10th November, it was a joy to watch all the pupils carry their boxes to the Team Hope van and hand them over, in the sure knowledge that each box would make a real difference in the lives of so many, many, needy children. Greg, a Team Hope volunteer driver, personally thanked each pupil for their box!
I would like to thank my excellent assistants, from 5th and 6th classes, for compiling the tally, helping the pupils bring their boxes down and for organizing the photographs.
We also received a text from Mrs. Carol Hennessey, National Manager, Team Hope personally thanking all the pupils, parents, teachers, SNAs and the entire school community for their kind and generous support.
