The students of Gaelcholáiste took part in Team Hope this year when we started back in September wrapping hundreds of shoeboxes in preparation for the Team Hope Christmas appeal. Many students brought in filled shoeboxes however through fundraising and team effort we ended up with a grand total of 100 boxes on the last day. Each day Lily, Wendy, Gwen and Bernie were helped greatly by our TY students who spent 4 hours per day sorting and checking thousands of boxes from all over county Carlow. We got a sense of the whole purpose and meaning of the Christmas shoebox appeal whereby the poorest children in the world receive a gift for Christmas. We are proud to be involved in such a great cause at this festive time and it really showed us that we should appreciate what we have.
