Christmas Jumper Day

Posted on : December 10, 2021

On Friday 10th December Sligo Grammar School held its annual Christmas Jumper Day. As ever the day was used as a fundraising opportunity, as well as a chance to kick of the festive season with a bit of cheer and good will! This year the chosen charity was Self Help Africa and the money raised is to go towards reforestation projects throughout Africa. The TY Green Schools Committee organised the day as part of their ongoing drive towards promoting a sustainable future for everyone. The day was a great success with students and teachers donning their ugliest Christmas jumpers for the cause. The students contributed €2 each for the charity – and for the chance to wear something other than school uniform! . Well done everyone! See some photos HERE.
