Picture17Portlaoise College students help Sunflowers Chernobyl Charity

5th year and TY students successfully raised €250 as well as developing their enterprising skills when they successfully planned and organised a fundraising Bakesale. The Bakesale was held at lunchtime in the school and relied on the contribution of baked goods from teachers, students and local businesses.

The event involved students developing and practicing their business skills and entrepreneurial talents. On the 14th of March a presentation of the cheque was made to Mr. Pat Dillon and Mr. Brendan Manning who visited the school representing the Sunflowers Chernobyl charity.
