This month we thank those parents, companies and individuals who donated to our Christmas raffle.  We were able to make a donation to St. Vincent de Paul as well as add to our Assistive Technology resources.

A major thank you to Biomarin and its staff for upgrading our secondary school and providing us with tickets for the Everyman Panto -we had a ball.

Thanks too to PC systems for its generous donation and ongoing support.
