Attention Students, Parents, Staff and Past Pupils,
We are writing to you about a Christmas Hamper project we are organising in our school this year.
Members of the CBC Monkstown Community are being asked to donate items for a collection of hampers. These hampers are an opportunity for us to help those in need in one of our sister primary schools here in Dublin – Francis Street, CBS.
Francis St. CBS is celebrating 200 years this year. Like us they are another proud ERST (Edmund Rice Schools Trust) school. The school is in a DEIS Band One category and is a proud community in the heart of The Liberties in the city centre. They face many challenges on a daily basis and in our role as a ‘Big Brother’ we can help our ‘Little Brother’.
As part of our strong tradition of helping others in the spirit of our founder, Blessed Edmund Rice, we are asking all who can to contribute to our appeal this Christmas.
A list of items for the hampers is attached here. Please read carefully as all items are to be new and for boys aged 6 – 8 years old or 9 – 12 years old. All items can be left into CBC (Reception Area) from 9am on Monday 2nd December until 2pm on Wednesday 12th December. Your presents will be gift-wrapped by CBC student volunteers and presented to Francis St. CBS at the CBC Advent Service on Thursday 13th December.
Please leave them in the reception area, with a note displaying which age group of boys it is for.
This appeal and the gifts you give shall make a difference to a young boy’s Christmas and to his family.
Please contact Neil Ferguson in CBC if you have any queries.
Thanking you in advance for your generosity,
CBC Monkstown & CBS Francis Street, Dublin
Boys – 6 - 8 years old (24 boys) – 2nd class
The TY students of CBC Monkstown in conjunction with the school’s climate action group are running an initiative to...
‘Plant a Tree in Memory’.
Small memory trees are being sold by the TY students for just €5.
•The memory tress serve as a poignant remembrance for your loved ones who have passed on and can give you a chance to reflect on the happy memories you treasure, during this holiday season.
•The trees are also extremely beneficial to the environment. By purchasing a memory tree, it can be your small but effective step forward to help our planet.
•The trees start off at 60/90cm in height and when fully grown after time reach an average of 8/10 feet long, this means your entire garden will not be taken up.
•There are two types of memory trees to choose from, a Crab Apple Tree or a Mountain Ash Tree, both priced at just €5.
•In CBC Monkstown there will be a corresponding tree which will hang all the names of the loved ones, who all the memory trees are dedicated for. The favourite colour of the loved one will be used to write their names on to.
•The memory trees can be bought individually or in bulk, but are available for limited time only
•To place an order for your memory tree or for further information contact Charlie at firstname.lastname@example.org
You must collect your memory tree from CBC Monkstown on Friday 13th of December
