Early this year, the St. Mary’s Student Council decided and agreed on having an “Athlone Wide” non-school uniform day to support Sr. Maria, who is in Haiti, helping the people who have lost so much in a recent disaster. The Student Council sent letters to 12 schools in Athlone to participate in this event. Each student was to bring 1-2 Euros. The event was successful, and in completion, 660 Euro was raised from this school alone, which is a large amount that has helped many people get better lives. St Mary’s Student Council, on behalf of the school, would like to thank the many parents who took part, for their donation.
