Each year, rang a sé organise and complete a school based fundraiser. This year, we planned a walkathon called 'Saint Mary's to Santa's'.
Over the month of December, sixth class in Saint Mary's walked the equivalent distance of the flight route from Dublin to Lapland (aka Santa's home), which was approximately 2,360 kilometers.
Pupils completed the distance by tracking their steps throughout the school day, on walks with their family and we also went on some local walks around the area as part of our physical education lessons. The class of 2021 raised over €1000 for the school and are delighted that it is going to be used to furnish our new sensory room.
