Exciting news!!!!!!! Buddy Bench Ireland, in conjunction with the Keith Duffy Foundation, gave a call to say that they would be donating a beautiful buddy bench to the school. These buddy benches have appeared on Nationwide and are a visual prompt to children on the playground to foster friendships. Ours is due to be delivered in June and we can’t wait to have it in our playground!! Buddy Bench Ireland are also calling back to see us in September to give our infant classes a very special talk on forming friendships.
This extremely kind gesture is to mark the launch of a nationwide fundraiser for Irish Autism Ireland etc. Stevey McGeown is running 60 marathons in 60 days to raise money for Irish Autism Ireland. Buddy Bench Ireland and the Keith Duffy Foundation have asked the parents and children of Scoil Charthaigh Naofa to come out and support Stevey on July 17th when he takes a break in Ferbane during his 47th marathon!!! They are asking parents and children to come along and walk or jog a few kilometres with Stevey to encourage him to keep going. Parents can find out more about this unique event on www.steveysepicadventure.com.
