The launch of the Slane Community Centre Monster Draw has taken place and tickets are now on sale. The benefits of the community centre for the school children are huge. Because of its location, the building will be a great new resource for the school. It is envisaged that we will use the sports hall for PE classes and for the training of the school teams when it is not possible to train outdoors. The hall will also be available to the school for concerts/assemblies and other functions or events that the school or the Parents Association may wish to host.
The extension and upgrading of the current school car park will also finally solve the problems with the flooding of the car park as well as redesigning the car park area, which will further assist with safety for pupils and adults.
This draw is the major fundraising initiative for the building of the Centre and all going well, the committee hope to be in a position to commence construction next year. The committee needs to sell 2,000 at €100 each and we can only do this with the support of the school community and the other organisations in this village. The committee will have a distribution desk at Davy’s shed set up in the run up to the draw to invite parents to take tickets or to buy tickets or parts of tickets. Please support them in whatever way you can.
