Caherline National School - Astro Turf Fundraiser: We have been granted funding for an Astro Turf facility in the school from a Sports Capital Grant. However, we need to raise more funds to complete the project. We will be holding a sponsored walk on Saturday April 2nd at 10am from the school around the Ballybrood Loop, after which there will be a bake sale in the Old school.

If anyone else in our school community, past pupils, local businesses, former parents/guardians of the school, formers members of the school community, parishioners or members of local clubs/organisations would like to assist us with this fundraiser, sponsorship cards can be collected at the school reception at any time during the school day.
