Fundraising Programme for the Samaritans

€1000 raised by Yeats College students for the Samaritans.

As part of this charity initiative, students will be participating in a school programme to develop an understanding of what the Samaritans do and how funds raised are distributed.

Cake Sale for the Samaritans
On Monday, December 13th, all students participated in a fundraising event. Fifth years, as part of Home Economics and Business, baked and sold an assortment of cakes with all proceeds going to the Samaritans.
24 hour Fast
Students from the school participated in a sponsored 24 hour fast on Thursday 16th of December. During their school day the students fasted and also collected money from family, friends and classmates.
Christmas Concert
The annual Christmas Concert was held in the school on Monday the 20th of December. Students performed many different acts including singing, dancing, playing an instrument and comedy sketches. The weather didn’t dampen the spirits of students and teachers but merely added to the Christmas Cheer.
