Powering Kindness a great success story in our school

 

The theme for our 7timgresh Green Flag is Global Citizenship. Part of the work for this flag is to learn about and support charities. With this in mind  children from 3rd to 6th classes supported three Irish Charities, Childline, Marie Keating Foundation and The Irish Heart Foundation  during the recent Powering Kindness Week. Children carried out acts of kindness and registered them on the powering kindness site and voted for their favourite charity.imgresElectric Ireland sponsored the week , donating 130,000 euro to be divided between the three charities, with the charity receiving the greatest number of votes getting the greatest proportion of the money.  Childline came out on top and received 60,000 euro to help fund the wonderful work they do. Well done to the 200 children from St Ollies who registered 748 acts of kindness and voted for a charity.

Special note:  Many thanks to Terri Ewing one of our parents and a volunteer for Childline who spoke to all the 3rd-6th class children helping to raise awareness of the valuable service Childline provides.
