New Trees in Saint Luke's !
(20) Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Unfortunately, we had to remove 2 beautiful ash trees , last week, from the school grounds as they might have presented a danger to the children in high winds. The school site is in a very exposed location. We have purchased 8 fruit trees to make up for this sad event. We will plant these trees this week,all going well, with one tree per class grouping planned.

Update ! Coin Collection International- Breaking News!
(19) Wednesday, February 13, 2013

In October 2012 we were delighted to support a Special Olympics fundraising initiative to collect old Irish coin and other foreign currencies no longer in circulation such as Francs, Lira, Pesetas, etc. Students were asked to bring in any old coin they might have at home that can no longer be used.


Coin Collection International then counted and valued the coins and converted them into a Euro value. Each school was issued with a coded bag to make sure that the amount collected in each school could be tracked. The amount raised was then divided on an agreed percentage basis between Special Olympics and the school.


The children from St Luke’s collected coins from no less than 34 different countries around the world:


Australia                       Bermuda                       Bulgaria                        Canada

Cyprus                          Czech Republic             Denmark                       England

Germany                       Hong Kong                    Hungary                        Iceland

Ireland                           Isle of Man                    Kenya                           Latvia

Lithuania                       Mauritius                       Nigeria                          Philippines

Poland                          Romania                       Russia                          Singapore

South Africa                  Spain                            Sweden             Switzerland

Thailand                        Turkey                          Ukraine                         United Arab Emirates

United States


In total €238.28 was raised by St Luke’s. Special Olympics Ireland received a donation from the school of €124.97 with the remainder of €113.31 being donated to back to the school.


Thanks to all the teachers and students for getting involved in this project. Special Olympics Ireland have expressed their appreciation to all of you. All funds donated to Special Olympics will help them continue to provide sports training to over 11,000 people with an intellectual disability throughout Ireland.


Claire Clifford has just contacted the school with this update on the coin collection!

"We now have the full breakdown list of what was raised all over the country and most schools who took part are getting back amounts of between €20 and €60 so St Lukes did exceptionally well in raising over €100 for the school plus the donation to Special Olympics. Thanks so much for the support.
