Cork Lions donation to Scoil Bernadette

Corl Lions Donation

Cork Lions Club were pleased recently to donate the sum of €1,500 to the school, some of which was used for the purchase of a video projector for a new prefab classroom that has recently been constructed to cater for the students and staff while the balance was used to purchase additional samba drums for the school's samba band. 

Corl Lions Donation

Activities such as the samba band prove to be very beneficial to the students. The samba band recently participated in the youth climate activities in Cork city centre which attracted huge numbers of students.
