Your contribution makes a big difference, thank you
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Mary, Mother of Hope Schools’ fundraiser lotto. It’s a fund-raising initiative and the money raised will be used to directly support our schools and your children’s education. Please pass the word on and invite friends and family.
As a school community we are committed to providing the very best digital technology, the very best PE equipment, the very best school books and the very best Art, Craft, Music and Science material for your children.
There are however, many financial challenges faced by schools each year. Over the past number of years grant income from the Department of Education & Skills has not been keeping up with the increases in our running costs e.g. insurance, water charges, gas, electricity and waste collection. We work hard to reduce the schools’ running costs and regularly review suppliers to reduce our costs.
The commitment to provide the very best for the children in our care costs more than the school grants provided by the department. This is a challenge for every school in Ireland and we want to overcome this challenge with our fundraiser lotto.
We will use the money raised to purchase resources and equipment for both schools and we will keep you updated about what we have been able to purchase so you can see the positive benefit of your support.
We understand the financial position for many of our families and hope that the weekly option of €2 per line will allow everybody to contribute.
If you can contribute 3 lines for €5 it would be hugely appreciated and you never know you might just win!
