During the 2012/2013 academic year the staff and students of Salesian College Celbridge have been actively raising money for our sister school in Pallithammam, Tamil Nadu in South East India. Our school raised €1000 from a non uniform day with the proceeds of this going towards the development of the basic facilities in the children’s home where many of the student population reside during the school year.

During this year we set up a child sponsorship programme which was generously supported and resulted in the sponsorship of 21 secondary and 5 primary school students from extremely disadvantaged families.This money will insure that these students will have access to books, uniforms bed & board during the year.

We are very proud that our school community is engaging in this child sponsorship programme & we hope to continue with it in the future. We greatly appreciate all those who have kindly supported this programme & hope you will continue to do so in the future.
