Everyone has been shocked by the images of Syrian families suffering incredible hardships as they flee the twin terrors of oppressive dictatorship and fanatical Islam, and the Junior and Senior Schools of St. Conleth’s decided to get together to do something about it. We may not have much influence on world affairs, but students, parents and teachers pooled their efforts to raise awareness, funds and supplies for the Syrian refugees. It all started with a coffee morning fundraiser, followed by a day-long gathering of suitable clothing and goods for the afflicted families and having a Jersey Day raised a further 2€ from each student. The Parents’ Associations, especially Angela Jermyn, and Meagher’s Pharmacies were instrumental in organisation, while the brawny Transition Years and Junior School mighty minions provided the muscle. Stay tuned for the final tally!
