Syria Crisis Appeal

The High School is responding to the refugee crisis in Europe by collecting cash and clothing for distribution by the Church of Ireland to charities supporting those in greatest need of our help.  All donations of clothing and other material (including cash to support the work of these charities) should be left at Reception.  The material will be delivered to a collection and distribution point which is being co-ordinated by volunteers at St Patrick's Cathedral.  We have been advised that donations should be made according to the priorities outlined in the list below:
