One Day Together 2019

Once a year we hold a national fundraising day – One Day Together – and ask the Educate Together community to come together, dig a little deeper and chat a little louder, to help us achieve our goal of providing inclusive, equality-based education to all families in Ireland who want it. Schools, start-up groups, alumni and families up and down the country mark the day with celebrations and fundraisers, all in aid of our charity Educate Together.

This year One Day Together will take place on 25th October 2019 and we would be both honoured and extremely grateful if you would consider taking part. Now, we know how busy the run-up to the mid-term break can be so if this date doesn’t suit, don’t worry at all, please feel free to choose another time. No matter what date is chosen or how you choose to celebrate the day, know that we would be thrilled to have you take part!

If you’d like to get involved but are unsure where to start, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Scroll to the bottom of the page and you’ll find our handy One Day Together 2019 fundraising pack, as well as customisable posters to advertise your event and sponsorship cards. 

One Day Together 2018

In 2018, One Day Together took place on 26th October and so many of our school communities and supporters pulled together to raise some much needed funds so that Educate Together can continue to open and support more schools and serve more children and families around Ireland. Here is a taster of what some of our schools did to mark the day:

Castlebar ETNS: “We had a great day celebrating One Day Together for Educate Together. We dressed up, had crazy hair and took in a trip to the Linenhall to see How to Catch a Star.”

Balbriggan ETNS: Students and staff held a ‘Self Expression Day’!

Kildare Town ETNS: “Our Witches Walk was a great success – the students enjoyed it no end, and were thrilled with the reception they got – cars beeping, people waving & saying hello really made their day!”

Canal Way ETNS: Students were asked to bring in ‘Coins for Concert’ and Dermot the principal performed his ‘world famous’ magic show!

Limerick ETSS: This was Limerick ETSS’s first One Day Together and they dove right in holding a fancy dress day as well as a bake sale!

Carrigaline ETNS: “We celebrated One Day Together by marking Educate Together’s 40th birthday. We had a wonderful assembly hosted by Nicola’s 6th class who told us some facts about our school’s history. The new members of our Student Council were announced. All the students went to the halla for a disco as well. We all had a fantastic day!”

Celbridge Community School:The school community at Celbridge CS held a bake sale where some amazing culinary creations were on show.

A huge thank you to all our schools who took part and made this One Day Together so special!
