Great Rush Bake Off

Rush Cake SalePictured at the Easter Cake Sale at Rush National School are pupils, Niamh Ryan, Hannah Monks and Jordan Fitzgerald

There was great excitement at Rush National School on Thursday last, when pupils partook in an Easter fundraising cake sale at the school.
This is a twice yearly event, which is organised by the Parents Association, with the other cake sale taking place at Halloween. The school hall was laid out with some wonderful creations, as the children brought in cakes and other treats. They also decorated cakes, which were then entered into a competition. School principal, Morgan Doran was very proud of the great effort put in by the enthusiastic pupils. He told the County Leader, “The two cake sales are a great source of funding for the school. The proceeds of the Halloween event last year was used to purchase an interactive whiteboard and projector in the hall. The standard of cakes is amazing and the competition is getting stiffer each year. It creates a great atmosphere coming up to the holiday period, and is a wonderful way to end off the school term,” he said.
