The pupils and staff at St Mary’s were honoured with an inspirational presentation today from Sr Andrea and Sr Claudia. The Sisters of Mercy spoke about their work in Zambia and told us heart-wrenching stories of children with Special Needs craving for an education. They explained how the Flamboyant Special Needs school came to be and how far these families travel in order to attend school.
Our funds generated from the Siopa Glas have been going to help the school and more recently transport to the school. There is a serious need for a new bus and we will continue to fund it. Our next Siopa Glas will be during Seachtain na Gaeilge. Both Sisters would like to express their sincere thanks to all the families who contributed in any way to the Siopa Glas. Sr Andrea is returning to Zambia next week. We wish her well and assure her of our thoughts, prayers and financial support throughout the year. Bail ó Dhia ar an obair!
