Austism Awareness Feel Good Story Caherline National School Limerick


OVER the Easter Holidays, parents and volunteers contributed to Caherline National School’s ‘The Shed’ transformation project.

The community helped to clean, tidy and paint the shed which will be used as a sensory space or outdoor classroom for pupils from the ASD setting going forward. This will be a fantastic asset to the pupils and staff of the ASD units.

The project received sponsorship from local businesses, including Millennium Centre, O Sullivans Centra, Caherconlish Pharmacy, Stone Oven Restaurant, Veterinary Centre Caherconlish and St Ailbes Credit Union.

The project also received a skip from Fitzgerald Skip Hire to aid in the clean up and paint from Crown Decorating Centre Limerick for the paintwork.

In praise of the volunteers the principal of Caherline National School said “You should be immensely proud of all your efforts and  work. You have made many children very happy and excited about coming to school”

Pupils who aided in the project were awarded with Act of Kindness awards in school for their contribution. 

Jean McElligott from Giggles Entertainment, chairperson for the Parents Association in Caherline National School said “Team work really does make the dream work! The community really came together on this amazing project”
