Staff and students at Benincasa are continuously involved in fundraising. Our children learn about social responsibility and raising funds for charity and volunteering their time and skills to those in need.
“Parcels for the Homeless”- An event which included the whole school, both staff and pupils contributed goods such as hats, socks, gloves, toiletries and other practical items which were made into parcels. Martina Mulligan distributed these parcels with the help of Mr. Delaney to the homeless in Blackrock, Dun Laoghaire and the inner city. The recipients were very grateful for the thoughtfulness of the school. Over 50 parcels were distributed in the weeks before Christmas.
Last March, the entire school got involved and ran several fundraising events which included a sponsored silence, car washing and a cake sale amongst others in aid of Trocaire. The total raised was an incredible €527.32!!
