Pyjama Day in aid of One Day Together

On Thursday the 27th of February 2014, Skerries Educate Together will be holding a Pyjama Day Fundraiser as part of One Day Together.

One Day Together is a day when schools, their communities and supporters come together to celebrate the Educate Together movement. So, once a year we pick one day when the whole family gets their fundraising boots on and we spend One Day Together, having fun and raising funds – together. Less than 10% of the funding we need to open and support our schools and parents comes from the government. So Educate Together Schools rely on charitable donations, volunteers and funds raised from events to keep us going and growing.

We in Skerries ET NS ask each child, teacher and parent to dress in their PJ’s (over their normal school attire) and bring a €2 contribution for our fundraising efforts. There is a max contribution of €4 per family.
There will also be an Art Competition for “Best Pyjama Design” taking place that week, children will receive details of this after the mid-term break.

To coincide with One Day Together, the national office will be hosting a comedy night in the Laughter Lounge in Dublin on Thursday 27th February. It’s the Best Of Irish Awards and we are bringing together six of Ireland’s well-known headliners to battle it out to become Ireland’s Top Comedian of 2014! Line-up will be announced shortly.
