The main aim though is the awareness and it was great to see the children dressed in their various colours enjoying a walk through the town on a glorious day,” said Liam. “I am sure some people in the town will have been wondering what the walk was about and as conversations happen about that, it raises awareness of Relay for Life and its aims of helping the Irish Cancer Society continue with its fantastic work in Donegal,” Liam said.He added: “The pupils from the older classes were all very much aware of the reasons behind the walk and were very keen to take part and it was great to see the effort they made for the day.”Liam is hoping that other schools across the county will follow the example set by St Eunan’s over the next few weeks.“I’m hoping other schools will take some time and organise their own walk at a time that suits them over the next few weeks. It doesn’t even have to be outside the school grounds. A walk around the school yard even can help raise awareness and if any school would like to organise a walk or find out more they can call me on 0862657758 or e.mail [email protected],” Liam concluded.  ST EUNAN’S NATIONAL SCHOOL MAKE A RAINBOW FOR RELAY IN THE SUNSHINE was last modified: May 16th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Liam PorterRaphoeRelay WalkRelay WeaSt Eunan’s NAtional Schoollast_img
