From Rathpeacon to Simotwo

Today, the boys and girls of Fifth Class organised a cake sale which raised €600 for the Yangat Initiative in Kenya.  This charity directly supports and finances a primary school – the Simotwo Academy near Barpello in Kenya.

Simotwo Academy provides schooling and three meals a day to approximately 60 children from the local area.  The children are between 3 and 11 years of age.  The school also employs five teachers and one cook – all of whom are paid through donations.  The school receives no government funding.  The money Fifth Class raised today will go directly to this school.

Well done to all of a Fifth Class and a huge thank you to them all, as well as to their Mums, Dads and Grannies for the help with the yummy baking for this worthy cause!  Just have a look at the selection that was on offer this morning!

Thanks too to everyone who supported the cake sale today!  Hope you enjoyed your cake!
