Our Annual Hazelwood College 45 Drive Fundraiser, hosted by the Parents Association will take place in the College on Good Friday Night March 25th 2016 next @ 8.30pm.
This annual 45 Drive Card night is in its 27th year of continued success in raising funds which have been given back to benefit and add quality education to all our students over the years in Hazelwood College.
- As a result of your continued support over the past year we the Parents Association recently hosted a visit from Mr Alan Quinlan Retired Rugby Union Player to speak to all students and staff of our College on Positive Mental Health. This unprecedented visit was greatly appreciated by Students and staff, and its aim was to remove the stigma attached to speaking out about mental health issues, and to get us all talking.
- We were also privileged to host an excellent workshop for Parents of all students attending Hazelwood College titled ‘’ Supporting our children through second level Education’’ presented by guest speaker, Mr Noel Brosnan. This workshop was attended by over 120 Parents on the night who found it to be very beneficial.
- We aim once again to provide Yoga classes to those who will be sitting their Leaving Cert exams in 2016 to aid and empower students in the fields of relaxation and breathing techniques which will help with coping skills required for destressing and exam pressure.
I hope we have provided you with an insight into how your continued support is utilised by our association in supporting Parents and Students of our School, and it is our aim to continue this work into the future.
Our School is the sole provider of second level education in this area where there are 350 families attending.
We ask for €20.00 per Family to purchase 4 tickets for the upcoming 45 Drive please, tickets enclosed, and all tickets returned will be entered by March 11th will be entered in a draw on the night.
