Senior Infants of Scoil Mhuire, Ballyhooly with their teachers beside their new fundraising thermometer.  The goal is to raise €100k in order to create a 21st century learning environment for the children of Ballyhooly.

Scoil Mhuire National School in Ballyhooly is continuing their efforts to create a 21st century learning environments for the children of Ballyhooly by fundraising for the construction of a state-of-the-art development at the school.

The Scoil Mhuire Development Committee has set a target of fundraising €100,000 to complement a grant by the Department of Education. So far the school has fundraised just over €20,000.

Planning permission for the state-of-the-art development was approved by Cork County Council in April 2016. The extension includes extra teaching areas, which incorporate a gross motor playground, fine motor room, as well as a cookery room, an arts studio and general purpose room, transforming the school into a 21st century learning space that promotes universal access and social inclusion.

Contact the school or any member of the Scoil Mhuire Development Committee to enquire about the fundraising challenge.
