Paráid na Scoile

In ainneoin drochaimsir na maidne dúirt an tUasal Coyle nach mbeadh diomá ar na bpaistí. Sochraíodh sliotán ama in amchlár gnóthach an halla agus seoladh na daltaí ann go mbeidís in ann a gcuid faisean a chur ar seó.

Temple Street - No Uniform Day

© St. Pius X BNS

On behalf of the 100 minds family and Temple Street Hospital I would sincerely like to thank and congratulate everyone in St. Pius X BNS for your incredible generosity. The total amount of money raised from the Non-Uniform day came to an astonishing €1003.70. The staff in Temple Street have informed me it was the most money that has been raised from a single Non-Uniform day to date. This amount far outweighed our expectations and has greatly contributed to the total 100 minds target of €100,000 of which €96,000 has been raised so far.
Temple Street Children’s Hospital will benefit from your unbelievable kindness by being able to purchase vital state of the art equipment and help finance various patient supports. This will help save children’s lives while making their lives that little bit better while they are in hospital.
To the staff, parents, and the pupils of St. Pius X BNS I am very grateful, and I think you should all be very proud of yourselves for making such a positive impact on the lives of the sickest children in Ireland.
