LCVP – Charity Donation – Cara Projects

The 5th Year LCVP class (5A) made a charity donation to Cara Projects. The funds were collected when 5A organised a 1st Year Table Quiz recently.

We welcomed back Paddy O’Connor to accept the funds on behalf of his charity – and he was very thankful for the support.

LCVP – Enterprise Activity – 1st Year Table Quiz

The 5th Year LCVP class organised a table quiz for the 1st Years. This allowed the 1st Years to enjoy a social experience and have some fun.

The 5A class had to engage in planning and preparation in advance of the quiz as well as carrying out the various tasks involved in running the event on the day. It was a worthwhile learning experience for them.

The 5th Years involved and Mr Dowling (LCVP teacher) would like to thank everyone who assisted with this activity and the 1st Years for their co-operation during it. In particular, a big thanks must go to Mr Wheeler, the quizmaster, and the 5th Year Prefects who helped out. Thanks also to Ms Kenny for sorting the winning prize.

We hope the 1st Years enjoyed participating in the activity. They did well and the standard of answering was high with six teams finishing tied at the top of the scoreboard – so it took a tie-break question to establish the winners: Mia Brierton, Tadhg Walsh, Katherine Howe-Hall & Cathal Stein (all from 1A) and runners-up: Kyle Corcoran, Aideen Farrell, Jack Kavanagh, Olivia Monaghan (all from 1C).

There was a raffle and a fun card game also with goodies to be won – well done to all the lucky winners.

The funds raised as part of this activity will go to charity.

5A welcomed Dan, a volunteer from CMRF, to CPC to receive a donation to the charity.

Dan thanked the students and gave them a quick talk about how the funds will be used to assist Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Well done to the students for their efforts during Enterprise Week when the money was raised as a result of a cake sale, a raffle and a competition.

Congratulations to everyone who donated in any way to the Concern Fast Appeal. Over 140 students got involved this year and we raised just over €4000.

The activities involved were the Sponsored Fast itself (120 students from various classes) a bucket collection around Kilcullen town (3rd & 4th years) and a 1st year table quiz (LCVP class).

Well done everyone – it’s a great achievement and will go a long way to help the most vulnerable people in our world.

Thank you to everyone who brought in shoeboxes filled with beautiful presents for children who otherwise would receive nothing this Christmas. The response was amazing.

Well done to everyone especially the Development Group (Jane O Toole, Evie Roynane, Fiona Eguare and Caitlin Smith) who worked hard encouraging everyone to get involved.

LCVP – Charity Donations

The 5th Year LCVP class (5A) made donations to three charities today – Kilcullen St Vincent de Paul, Cara Projects & Concern.

The funds were collected when 5A organised a 1st Year Table Quiz recently in aid of charity.

The students chose the recipients & welcomed the following to accept the funds on behalf of each charity:

  • Charlie Talbot & Josephine Larkin (Kilcullen St Vincent de Paul)
  • Paddy O’Connor (Cara Projects)
  • Ms Flanagan, Evie Ronayne & Sydney Sheridan (Concern)

They were all delighted with the money & thanked the students for the support.

LCVP – Enterprise Activity – 1st Year Table Quiz

The 5th Year LCVP class organised a table quiz for the 1st Years. This provided the 1st Years with an opportunity to engage in a team activity and to get to know new people in their year group while having some fun.

The 5A class worked hard in planning this activity. It involved a lot of preparation and was a worthwhile learning experience for them.

The 5th Years involved and Mr Dowling (LCVP teacher) would like to thank everyone who assisted in carrying out this activity and the 1st Years for their co-operation during it. In particular, a big thanks must go to Mr Dowd, our quizmaster, and the 5th Year Prefects who helped out. We must also thank Ms Kenny for sorting the winning prize.

We hope the 1st Years enjoyed participating in the quiz. They did well and the standard of answering was high. Congratulations must go to the winners: Adam Finnegan, Jack Whelan and Roisin McGrath (all from 1B). There was a raffle also with plenty of goodies to be won – well done to all the lucky winners.

The funds raised as part of this activity will go to charity.

Concern Fast

Two weeks to go to the Concern Fast. We were one of the top fundraising schools last year. With your help we could do it again. Please support the CPC as we fast  for Concern on November 24th.

 

LCVP – Paddy O’Connor (Cara Projects) Visit In

Paddy O’Connor of Cara Projects recently visited CPC to meet the 5A students (5th Year LCVP class). Paddy explained about the wonderful work carried out by his charity in Kenya. The students learned a lot from this talk. It was very interesting to hear about this charity and it was fascinating to find out how this project got off the ground and stays going.

The theme of the talk was enterprise and it provided the students with a useful insight into the innovation and creativity required to set up and manage a charity. Paddy speaks with great passion about the work of Cara Projects and it was a great learning opportunity for the students to meet and engage with him.

Last year, Paddy was telling us about his upcoming visit to Trinity College to meet a professor (Laurence Gill) to discuss water harvesting / conservation. We found out today that Laurence has since visited the rescue centre in Kenya and provided valuable assistance to Cara Projects.

Thanks to Paddy for taking the time to visit our school. We wish Cara Projects well with it’s good work (helping lots of vulnerable women in Kenya) into the future.
