Fundraising Activities in SGS

Posted on : October 17, 2018

In Sligo Grammar School students are encouraged to get involved in the community in a variety of ways. As well as volunteering to help with community projects, working with people with special needs and participating in flag days  the students run special fundraising events within the school. In the last two weeks TY students ran a “Jersey Day” in aid of the charity GOAL and teachers and students from all classes got involved, donating €2 each for the privilege of wearing the jersey of their favourite team.  Last week the TY Annual Sponsored Swim took place.  Seventy students participated in the swim at Rosses Point beach, some in fancy-dress. The swim was a huge success with €1,200 collected for various local charities.  A special thanks to Paul (lifeguard) and all the teachers involved.   See some photos HERE
