Cheque Presentation.
Scoil Lua Naofa Lorrha received a boost to their building fund ahead of the official opening of the new school extension on February 18th. when the recently elected chairperson of the Parents Association Etain Reddin presented the chairperson of the Board of Management Margaret O’Meara with a cheque towards the project. The Parents Association commenced fundraising towards the schools refurbishment as far back as 1998 under the then chairman David Power when the group launched a Lord Mayor Campaign. In the years since and under different people at the helm fundraising continued and this cheque was the culmination of all such efforts.
