Jersey Day

On the 8th of October St Columba’s took part in ‘Jersey Day’. Students brought in €2 and wore any jersey they wanted. A massive €720 was collected on the day and was sent to the charity GOAL. This charity helps poor people in countries affected by conflict, instability and climate change.  


Goal was founded by an Irish man named John O’Shea in 1977. Over the last forty three years Goal has responded to many of the world’s major human crises. Last year its staff reached more than five million people in fourteen countries across Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. 


3D Halloween Art Competition

Before the mid term break the Student Council organised a 3D Halloween Art Competition in the school. The entries were fantastic! There were flying witches, scary skeletons, spooky spiders and lots more. There were three categories in the competition and two class levels competed against each other in each category; first and second, third and fourth, and fifth and sixth.


On Friday 22nd October each class got to come to the school hall with three raffle tickets. They used their tickets to vote for their favourite piece of art in each category. 


Well done to the winners Doireann, Zumi and Saoirse! 


All in all October was a great month in our school.
