Deferral of Good Counsel College Monster Raffle
Regretfully our Monster Raffle has temporarily succumbed to the Covid 19 emergency sweeping across our communities. The health of all is of primary importance to us as a school in this unfamiliar time and this has informed our decision.
We have had fantastic support from students, parents/guardians and past pupils alike to bring our raffle to its current point and all of this work will not go to waste. Thank you to the huge numbers of people in our community and beyond who have shown their support for the college in buying large numbers of tickets to-date.
We are deferring the raffle until early in the next academic year and thank all of our generous prize sponsors for guaranteeing the same prizes for the deferred Raffle. We hope those in our community support those businesses in this difficult time. In this regard all tickets sold will be valid for the deferred draw and tickets will remain available from students, families and past pupils.
Planning permission has been submitted for the expansion of our Assembly Hall social space which will provide additional canteen facilities and additional seating for 350 of our students. Unfortunately, that project will not be completed now as planned for September 2020. However, with a fair wind and commitment from all involved the deferred Monster Raffle will reach its target of €200k and allow us to develop this vital facility in the very near future.
Keep a close eye on our website, www.goodcounselcolleg.ie, our Twitter account @GCC_NewRoss and our Past Pupils’ and Parents’ Council Facebook pages for further updates.
We hope that everyone stays safe and looks after each other and their loved ones in the coming weeks.
