Dromintee and Jonesboro Playgroup Top of the Class

May 7, 2013

Dromintee and Jonesboro Playgroup have had a busy term fundraising for Playgroup resources to help get our premises ready for springtime.  Since January, the group has been under the leadership of a new management committee, and has held a number of fundraising events.

Our Playgroup Quiz, held in the Three Steps Bar definitely showed who was Top of the Class and raised £380 and €140.  Thanks to all the local businesses who sponsored our raffle prizes or supported us in any way.  The Playgroup have also been keeping Parents and Grandparents very busy bag-packing in local shops, and collecting at Dromintee and Jonesboro Churches.  Thanks to our Parents’ for all their help and support, and thanks to Father Dermot for allowing us to hold the Church Gate collection.  We have also recently held a Parents’ and Grandparent’s day where families got the opportunity to come in and see the children’s beautiful little works of art and their pretty gardening attempts first hand!  Our newly cleaned outdoor area has provided the perfect opportunity for our little one’s to get some regular exercise too.  Thank you to all those involved in helping us to get the outdoor area ready for springtime!

The Playgroup is based in Dromintee Community Centre, and is open from Monday to Friday 9.00am to 12.00 midday.  We have paying and PEAGs places available for the School Year starting September 2013.  Contact Shauna on 028 30 888 294.or 0035387 9051700 for more information or for an application form.
