Our new school is currently under construction and we need your help!

180 years ago in 1839,

The Sisters of Mercy came to Naas and started a Primary School. That school still stands today alongside your new school, which is under construction now, in 2019!

The Mercy Convent Primary School still maintains the same dedication to the education of the children in the Naas locality as it did for the parents, grandparents and teachers who were also once proud pupils of the Mercy Convent Primary School.

BUY A BRICK NOW

What will the money raised
be used for?

The Parents Association and teachers are proud to launch the “Buy a Brick” fundraising campaign to supplement the funding provided by the Department of Education, which covers most, but not all of the items required for the new school.

Your donation will assist with the funding of a variety of items for example, classroom fixtures and fittings, ICT equipment, library resources, a portable stage and a sensory garden. Our aim is for the school to be a place where pupils can learn in an enriching and happy environment!

How do I purchase?

What you get in return

In return for your generous donation, your chosen text will be placed on a brick on the virtual brick wall of our school website. We will also be unveiling a thank you wall of sponsors when the new school is completed with the names of all those who kindly supported the school build.

We would encourage parents who own their own businesses/ those working for a company, who would like to support the school to please sponsor a business brick.

In recognition of your generous contribution we will display your company/business name on the virtual wall on our website and at a later date, on a wall display of sponsors in a prominent position in the new school.
