Adi Roche Visited the SHS to thank students for their fundraising efforts towards the Adi Roche Foundation. In all SHS students raised over €1000 for the charity at the end of the last school year.

The money has provided a lifesaving heart operation to a child in Belarus who is suffering from a common heart defect caused by the elevated levels of radiation the population is exposed to following the Chernobyl disaster. Ms Roche also gave an inspiration al speech to TY students encouraging them to be the best they can be and to be considerate of the power they have to change the lives of the less fortunate. Ms Margaret Martin was the mentor teacher to this group.
