One Day Together 2020

With the current Covid-19 related restrictions, this school year is certainly one like no other. This has meant that traditional fundraising events cannot take place as normal. We are of course still celebrating One Day Together on Friday 23rd October, as Educate Together’s national day. One Day Together is about more than just raising funds to help us to do the work we do. It’s about our network coming together on one day as a community of schools to celebrate what’s so unique about Educate Together, our shared values and our equality-based ethos. This year more than ever we need to come together to support each other, and to celebrate the amazing work our schools do.  

One Day Together 2019

In 2019, One Day Together took place on 25th October and many of our school communities and supporters came together to raise some much needed funds for Educate Together. Here is a taster of what some of our schools did to mark the day:

Newbridge ETNS:At Newbridge Educate Together, we mixed all classes together to do some beautiful artwork! We chose words that represented our school. The staff and students then compiled all 400 pictures together in a “Together Collage’!”

Fermoy ETNS: “Fermoy ETNS held a dress-up day for One Day Together. Teachers also joined in the fun. Our principal Aideen was “The Greatest Showwoman” and our teacher Claire was a Unicorn.”

Balbriggan ETNS:For One Day Together this year we held a Self Expression Day and a Human Rights Concert.”

Rathfarnham ETNS:  “At RETNS we held our annual Hallowe’en assembly in the morning, which was greatly enjoyed by our school community. As always, our Student Council voted for  the winner of the staff dress-up competition.  Our assembly was also a fundraiser for  the ‘One Day Together’ campaign, raising funds for Educate Together.”

Swords ETNS:We held a dress-up day for One Day Together this year. Our theme was “The little Miss/Little Mr ” books for our staff dress up while students dressed up in their favourite costumes.”

Westport ETNS: “Westport ETNS held a pyjama and movie night for One Day Together this year.”

Citywest ETNS: “Our wonderful parents association organised a disco for One Day Together this year and we all went in fancy dress.”

Sandymount Park ETSS: “For this year’s One Day Together, our school community organised a bake sale and held a dress up day.”

Bremore ETSS: “The student council at Bremore ETSS organised a scare room for their fellow students and staff.”

North Wicklow ETSS: “We organised a ‘spooktacular’ sensory experience in our ASD class for to raise money for a number of causes close to our hearts, including One Day Together.”

Firhouse ETSS: “At Firhouse ETSS, a fancy dress day was held for One Day Together 2019. Everyone got involved, including the teachers, and there were some amazing costumes on show!”
