Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 10 update

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delayed update on our progress from day 10 but we had a lovely stay in Lozovik, Serbia, and it’ll be time to move on soon.  On Friday we completed a record-setting 439km, bringing us across the border into Bulgaria, through the capital city Sofia and on to the city of Pazardzhik (population 71,000), which sits on the Maritsa river.  We have also now completed a terrific 4329km in total since leaving Skerries 10 days ago.

Thanks for your support (including many of the children and their families who have returned their sponsorship cards to the school) and we’ll update you again tomorrow.

All the best,

Conor

‘One day together’ for Educate Together

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Educate Together’s awareness and fundraising event is on Friday the 6th October.

Educate Together schools all around Ireland celebrate what it means to be an Educate Together school and fund raise for our school Patron.

In our school we will have a pyjama day on Friday where the children will bring in a toy or item that means a lot to them. We will share stories about what makes the item special to them. We will also collect €2 from those that wish to donate.
More information on ‘One day together’ can be found at https://www.educatetogether.ie/one-day-together-2017

Best wishes,
Tomás.
