Lollipop Day

Just a taster....until someone sends me a report!!

The lovely Brian Ormond and Meg and Ali

Our Conga made it to YouTube!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbzPCWzSMXQ

Finally got these emails.

Meg says,
"Lollipop Lollipop O Lolli Lolli pop" was all that could be heard around St.Stephens Green shopping center and of course the occasional "Love you Brian!!"
We started the day of in school getting our caps and official t-shirts to wear then we went into town and met the organisers and we got our boxes of lollipops and badges. Then we all lined the streets of Dublin in aid of Oesophageal Cancer fund to sell lollipops. I was on Baggot Street with Ellie and Nicolle and at the start we didn't have a lot of people around but as the day went on we sold loads of lollipops and a lot a badges as well.
At 12.30 we all headed down to St. Stephens Green shopping center for the launch where we all got to sign a wall and a choir from another school were singing songs! But of course once there’s music our girls can’t stay still for very long, we all joined in singing and dancing conga lines and Mrs. Leahy was the one to get the party going :)
Brian Ormond, a presenter from RTE, was presenting the whole event so we got pictures with him and autographs."

Ellie says,
"We were separated into groups of 2 or 3 and assigned a street to collect on. We got lots of generous people and a few not so generous. However by the end of the day we had collected lots of money for such a good cause and had great fun in the process.
Watching Mrs Leahy dance around in St Stephen’s green shopping centre was one of the highlights to the day. Girls got pictures with Brian Ormond who was there to officially launch Lollipop Day. We all had a really great day overall, and felt so happy to be able to help."

Katie says,
It was so good! Dancing in St. Stephens Green shopping center and almost getting lost going to our destinations!!! It was brilliant!!!
Thanks so much Ms Leahy and Ms O Callaghan for coming with us!!!

Mrs Leahy would like to thank Emma Murphy, Katie Ryan, and Paula Cunniffe who, over the last 3 weeks, did all the organising for the day. Well done girls.
