STUDENTS, teachers, parents and friends of Ardscoil Mhuire in Corbally, Limerick are to hold their own version of the popular television series The Kube as part of a fundraising bid to raise €250,000 for a new school development.
A prize fund of €1,000 is up for grabs at the fundraiser, taking place on Friday, February 9, in Thomond Park.
Construction plans have been drawn up for the new development project at Ardscoil Mhuire, which is due to begin in late 2018, according to principle of the school Bríd Herbert.
The new development aims to cater for the needs of a rapidly growing school as the school’s current enrolment currently stands at more than 500 students.
“I look forward to overseeing this project, which will ensure that our students continue to receive a high quality education in an up to date and state of the art facility,” Ms Herbert said.
“We anticipate a full house in Thomond Park. The venue can hold up to 600 people and many members of our school community have expressed an interest in attending.
“Ardscoil Mhuire is very grateful to everyone involved for their assistance and hard work. I would like to thank our sponsors, participants, parents and students for all their support. A special mention must be given to KBC who have very generously agreed to be the title sponsor of our event.”
Tickets are available from the school on 061- 349014 and are €20 per adult and €15 for post primary students.
