The Student Council have decided to run a Pyjama Day on Friday the 29 th of November. On this day you can wear your pyjamas to school and bring a teddy bear. We will then have a cosy afternoon with our teddy bears and a movie. The Student Council would like to raise money for Inner City Homelessness charity. If you take part in Pyjama Day members of the Student Council will collect donations of €2. Please remember to still wear your coats, warm pyjamas/ clothes underneath and sensible shoes as we will have a normal school day with assembly and yard time.
