Portlaoise Educate Together NS Parents Association held a Mega Egg Hunt on Wednesday last, to try raise funds for much needed resources for the school.
Every child got an egg with some children from each class finding ‘silver’ and ‘golden tickets’.
The winning tickets meant you got to pick a giant egg from the school office.
The rules were simple if you found an egg you keep it, but then you must also help your friends find an egg too.
There was much excitement in the school especially amongst the younger children.
Children running frantically to find their hidden chocolate treasure! The day was a huge success with just under €500 being raised from the morning of fun!
The school and PA’s endeavour to raise the remainder of money required for the Summerhill Sports pitch.
With only months to go before the summer is upon us, the Parent’s Association are hosting a night with Transmitter in Kavanaghs’ Portlaoise on Saturday May 18.
Tickets are €12 each and can be purchased online with Ticketmaster or in Kavanagh’s pub.
This is it’s third year running and the event has sold out it’s previous two years, there is a monster draw on the night too.
