Dear Parents/Guardians,

MONSTER CHRISTMAS RAFFLE

As our Christmas Fair will not take place this year we intend to host a Monster Christmas Raffle.    A huge thanks to all that have made donations to date.  We will continue to accept offers of prizes/donations through the school offices (johnstownbns@gmail.com, office@johnstowngns.ie.)

As in previous years, a book of tickets will be issued to each family at a cost of €5 per ticket or a book of 5 for €20.  The draw will take place on Monday, December 21st at 11am in the school and will be available online through a live feed.

Tickets can be returned to the class teacher in a sealed envelope.  All Covid 19 Guidelines will be observed and tickets and money will be quarantined for 72 hours.

Tickets will be issued to each family before then end of the week. Additional books of tickets will be available from the offices.  We will continue to update the list of prizes and communicate these to you.

We thank you for your continued support and generosity.

Caroline and Neil.

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
