Newpark Comprehensive School “Buy a Brick” Campaign
As many of you may be aware Newpark Comprehensive School will soon be getting a new school building. This is great news for our children and future generations of children. Unfortunately, the Department of Education and Science funding does not fully cover the fitting out of the building and facilities. We therefore need to raise a minimum of 35K to fit out the labs, canteen etc. Our biggest fundraising event is the “Buy a Brick” campaign. We are appealing for additional support from MET parents as many of your children will benefit from the new build in the future. Our aim is to make Newpark School a centre of excellence in education. Full details of the campaign are available at newparkschool.ie/fundraising We hope you will be able to support this campaign and thank you in anticipation.
