'Cairde' (meaning 'friends') is a voluntary fundraising association comprising of parents and guardians of pupils at Bunscoil agus Naíscoil Bheanna Boirche. Although independent and voluntary, Cairde works in close conjunction with the school to assist with fundraising initiatives and expenditure on projects. School pupils are also consulted on project ideas via the School Council. Parents are regularly asked for their ideas and contributions via our school website, the SchoolsNI app, and via our Facebook page 'Cairde Naíscoil agus Bhunscoil Bheanna Boirche' which all school parents and guardians are encouraged to follow.


Due to the outstanding efforts of Cairde, a wide range of both resources and equipment, as well as trips and experiences have been funded, such as end of year fun days and bouncy castles and buses for school trips.


Among the fantastic opportunities and resources Cairde have funded are: pupil counselling courses, purchase of school banners and signage, provision of paint for external walls and fences, Accelerated Reader subscription, selection boxes for all pupils at Christmas, and ICT equipment, such as iPad upgrades and repairs.


Cairde continue to work hard to fundraise and support the school, but the increasing cost-of-living has undoubtedly had a negative impact on the abilities of Cairde to be able to fundraise as much as they would like. Feel free to click on our 'Donate' button below to help in any way you can.


Alternatively, following on from parental suggestions, Cairde have created wish lists to enable parents, carers and school supporters to buy items that the school really needs.  Below is a link to each year group's Amazon Wish List containing items that school staff have carefully selected for their class.  If you are in a position to support the school in this way, please have a look through, and if you see something you would like to buy, just follow the same process as you would if you were ordering something for yourself.  Items will be delivered directly to the school, marked for the attention of the relevant teacher.  Thank you for your support, it is much appreciated!
