In December, thanks to the remarkable efforts of pupils and staff, and the ever-present generosity of the Inishowen community, €7000 was donated to the school's designated charities. The Annual Day of Action 2016 played a central role in the fundraising drive. The Donegal Alzheimer's Society received €3000. Mary Gillen was on hand to accept the cheque on behalf of the Society. The Derry and Donegal Hospices were each presented with €1500. Past-staff member Jim Neary represented both hospices on presentation day. Further donations totalling €1000 were presented to Global Brigades (Sarah Diver & Erin Houghton) and Childreach International (Mary Doherty). A huge debt of gratitude is owed to everyone who assisted in and contributed to fundraising efforts in 2016.
