Lugnaquilla sponsored climb next weekend

The sponsored climb of Lugnaquilla, in aid of Cross and Passion College Library and an accelerated reading programme, will be held on Sunday next 15 May.

It starts at Fentons at 10am, weather permitting. Register for the event at Any donation welcome. Further details -  087 6497619.

The project has already received a donation towards the refurbishment programme from the College's Parents Association.

The funds raised will also help towards the introduction of an Accelerated Reading Programme for all First Year students, which would mean a special investment in new books to a possible cost of €20,000. In the meantime, a general programme of updating the books stock is under way.
