On behalf of Scoil Phádraig Naofa we would like to express our sincere gratitude for your overwhelming support for our annual Shoe Box appeal.

Mile buíochas to our elves in Sixth Class Room 6 who helped with the organisation, promotion and collection of all the shoe boxes. We had 317 boxes collected from the pupils of SPN, this has surpassed all our expectations! The boxes were then carefully wrapped in protective sheets, loaded and sent to the Hope warehouse by Aidan of International Finishing who kindly donated his services. Thank you to Fiona and Aidan.

Of course, it couldn’t be run without the help from the Parents Association, Class Reps and all the parents and pupils who gave so generously. Remembering those less fortunate children who get to spend Christmas in war torn countries, volatile situations, in hunger and distress while counting our blessings that our own kids are so well provided for in SPN.

It really captures the essence of SPN and everything we believe in and our amazing children are spreading love and generosity around the world to children their own ages who do now have the same privileges and home comforts. Imagine the joy when the children open their boxes of Hope from SPN!
