Full Marathon for ASD Classes in Cullina National School

Full Marathon for ASD Classes in Cullina National School

9th February 2024


“All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have equal opportunity to develop our talent” John F. Kennedy

Sarah Houlihan, an SNA in Cullina National school, has decided that there is no mountain high enough to climb for the children under her care. Sarah has decided to run a full marathon for the children in the ASD classes in her school. She will be taking on the challenge on Friday the 9th of February, leaving Cullina school at 9am.

How did this fundraiser idea come about?

Last September, class teacher Lorraine Counihan, another classroom SNA Sarah Kelleher and Sarah were chatting after the children went home. They spoke about how the children in both the junior and senior classes deserved so many more opportunities outside of the school to promote their social and  communication skills, as well as therapeutic activities.They want to give them every opportunity possible. However, such trips and activities are expensive.

Sarah and her colleagues know that they work in a very privileged position and they work in classrooms with fantastic children who have wonderful talents and amazing personalities. They feel lucky to be part of their life for a few hours everyday.

The aim of this fundraiser is to raise much needed funds so the children in the ASD classrooms can go on outings once or twice a month, visit the library, stand in queues to exchange their books, experience therapeutic horse riding sessions and surf lessons. The more we raise the more opportunities we can offer our children.

Please support Sarah Houlihan and the children of Cullina National school. The funds raised will make a massive differnce to their school life.
