St Vincent de Paul Christmas Campaign
Since 2008, St Michael's has supported the St Vincent de Paul Christmas campaigns very strongly. In the past, each form class would have assembled their own hampers to be collected and distributed around Fermanagh. This year, as in 2020, things were done differently as each class contributed towards the purchase of vouchers for various shops and businesses around the county.
We were delighted to have a quick visit today from Martha Smyth, Brendan Hueston, Dodie Maguire, Mary Doris and Brendan O'Harte, who represented local SVP branches. They received the vouchers from Ben Reilly, Jamie Lannon and Patrick Sinclair (10T), representing our students, plus Mr Rasdale and Mrs O'Donnell, representing the staff. Mr Heuston spoke very nicely to our boys to thank them and their teachers for their work and to explain how the branches would distribute the vouchers onwards to local families in need of assistance at the moment.
Well done boys!! (With special mention to 14P & Mr Gallagher, 14M & Mrs West, and 10T & Mrs Collins for their particularly outstanding collections).
