Monster Christmas Raffle

Our Lady of Good Counsel Schools         

  Johnstown, Dun Laoghaire.     

23rd November 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Unfortunately in this Covid climate the Annual Christmas Fair will not take place.  The schools are totally dependent on income from the Fair to provide essential school equipment and resources for classroom and school use.  Many of the class activities could not be funded without this assistance.  For parents that are new to the school this is our main fundraiser which raises circa €25,000.  

A number of parents have been in contact with the schools to ask how they can help with fundraising in these unusual times.    

We intend to hold a Monster Christmas Raffle just before the Christmas holidays.  Here are the ways you can help:

  1. Donate a prize
  2. Donate luxury items such as a hotel break, restaurant voucher, 
  3. Access to discounted items/vouchers that could be used in the raffle through work or friends
  4. Donations
  5. Buying the tickets
  6. Selling tickets to family, work colleagues

If you have any ideas for future fundraising or any other assistance you could give, please contact the office.

Full details on the Christmas Monster Raffle will be issued next week but at the moment please contact the school office by Friday 27th office@johnstowngns.ie or johnstownbns@olgc.ie if you can help in any way towards prizes for the Monster Christmas Raffle.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Caroline & Neil

The Johnstown GNS 50th Celebration and Reunion night.

Johnstown GNS have decided to have their 50th celebration big night out on, Friday the 5th October in Killiney Castle.

They have asked the JPA to let parents know and ask you to ‘save the date’. The GNS will send out a text to all parents with details to follow, in September.

We would ask for your continued support and we hope to see many of you there on the night.

Save the Date! for #JohnstownGNS50
