Mr Bergin and May from Team Hope Kilkenny.
We here in the CBS have been delighted to take part in the Team Hope Shoebox Appeal for the first time this year. It was wonderful to see all the families who participated and we amazed at the amount of boxes we have gathered. (112 boxes were collected from the school Friday 8th November)
Our appeal was launched on Friday the 11th of October when May and Ann from Team Hope Kilkenny came to speak to the whole school and tell us all about where the shoe boxes go and what to include in them. (The 4 W’s) I’m sure the boys all enjoyed looking for their WOW item to include in their shoes boxes.

After the midterm break the boys started to add to our Team Hope pile, many thanks to Jack’s Mam, who owns Tip Top Toes, for the shoe boxes for the boys to take home and fill.
A huge word of thanks to all the boys, their parents and the staff who contributed to the fantastic number of 112 shoeboxes for our first Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal.
