SGS Helps in the Fight Against Covid19

Posted on : April 12, 2020

Although closed for the duration of the Covid19 Emergency, Sligo Grammar School, its staff and past pupils are donating time, talents and facilities to help in the continued efforts of the wider community to contain the Covid19 epidemic. The school has opened the car park for use by Sligo University Hospital and the school itself remains available should the HSE need it. Indeed SGS has already donated goggles – raided from the science labs – to the hospital. Past pupil and local businessman, Howard Moffitt of Moffit’s Department Store, Sligo, is working with the Headmaster, Michael Hall to prepare consignments of cotton, donated in conjunction with Sligo Freemasons, for use by local volunteers in the making of scrubs and face masks for frontline staff in Sligo University Hospital. Some members of staff are working with the Craft and Sewing Basket in the making of those scrubs and face masks. Sligo Grammar School is very proud to be involved in the community-wide effort to slow the spread of CoronaVirus and we encourage everyone to do whatever they can to help out, and, most importantly, stay at home and keep social distance whenever you must go out.
