UP THE DUFFRY!!! 

We are taking part in the ‘To the Moon and Back’ challenge in support of the Irish Heart Foundation starting tomorrow October 5th. We decided to run it this week in conjunction with Space Week as we will all be learning about the planets and our Solar System in a fun and activity filled way. All money raised will go straight to the Irish Heart Foundation and if the school raises over €750 we will receive a sports bag full of equipment to help promote physical activity. To learn more about the challenge click on the link below and stay tuned to our Twitter account to see videos and pictures of everyone participating. We appreciate everyone’s help in supporting this very worthy cause.
