The young entrepreneurs in 5th and 6th class, along with great help from Brian and John O’Neill staged a great occasion last Thursday night in Sláns for the Turkey Auction. The shed was decorated beautifully by Brian and John for the occasion and the auction itself was very entertaining which was conducted by Tommy Clarke. All 13 turkeys were auctioned at an average price of €65.
The entertainment and refreshments went down a treat in Sláns after wards. We must thank the Parents Association for their help on the night and O’Neill’s Bakery for sponsoring the mince pies. We must also thank David Mc Afee of Sláns for providing the venue also.
All turkey buyers will be contacted in the coming days about a time and date to collect their turkey in the school.
The pupils put in great effort over the last number of months and their efforts were well rewarded when the final account was created. The project made a very handsome profit of €853.50 which will go a long way to purchasing resources needed for the pupils in the school. Well done 5th and 6th class!
