The Telethon 2000 took place on the 5th May.  For the big event there was a lot of preparation.  Sixth class did a number of competitions which a lot of the school entered in, for example there was a pokemon competition, a colouring and hand writing competition, there was also a basketball shoot out and one of the most popular events was a basketball match between children v teachers, of course the children won.  Some boys brought in a playstation which the pupils could play.

 In fourth class there was a teddy that you had to guess the name of the teddy.  We move on to 3rd class there they had to guess the teddy's name also, in the other classes there were Waterford stickers for 2p and raffles.  There was a Easter Egg that was raffled and the runners up got passes to the local sport centre which is situated in Carrick-on-Suir.

There was a mixture of fourth class and sixth class that sang Britney Spears and ABBA.Some people who do Irish Dancing did a jig for the school.

In fifth class a girl sang I'll tell me ma when I go home.  The telethon 2000 was a big success and everyone enjoyed it. We would like to thank everyone who supported 
the telethon.
