Match Grant Funding Volunteer Programme
A huge thank you to Maria O’Neill (mother of Jack and Amelia Price, Rm 4 and Rm 19) who got our school involved in a Match Grant Funding Volunteer Programme with Intel. The Program aims to recognize and motivate Intel employees, globally, to engage in outreach and volunteerism to make our communities a better place to live, work, and play. Its objective is to support employees’ giving their time and talent to qualified non profits and non-governmental organizations and schools. Intel have allowed parents to record the home schooling hours undertaken with their children during the school closures as volunteer hours. This resulted in a grant of €1511.36 issuing to our school this week. We were so delighted with the news and will definitely put the money to good use. Thank you very much to the Price family!!!
