“Buy a Brick” Fundraiser

Dear Parents/Guardians

Since 2013 we have watched Coláiste Bhaile Chláir grow from a class of first years, to the school of over 1,100 students that it is today. The students, our children, are educated in a fantastic environment with state-of-the-art facilities. Up to the present, we haven’t been asked to contribute to the various building developments on a major scale. We are now asking for major financial help with the development of facilities for use by students at breaktimes and after school.

In order to make this fundraiser successful, we need to raise in excess of €100,000. Funding will initially go towards the repayment of a loan by the school for the wonderful, recently completed AstroTurf. Funds will also go towards many other sport and extra-curricular activities e.g. support for Model UN, Concern Debating, Young Scientist, Scifest and student art projects, as well as future facilities.

Donations, as follows, are now being sought.


€50 (Bronze), €100 (Silver), €150 (Gold)


€250 (Platinum), €500 (Premium), Excess of €500 (Premium +)

GRETB (the school’s patron) is a registered charity, so any donations in excess of €250 provide an additional tax incentive for businesses and individuals. A wall of benefactors in the school, of those who have contributed, will be displayed following this major fundraising drive.

We, the Parents’ Association, hope you will play your part by getting behind this initiative and share in this legacy which benefits our children. We have set a deadline for Friday 3rd April for donations. Please contact the school if you have any questions. Thank you.
