Congratulations to our GCC Darkness Into Light Committee
Back in October Darkness Into Light (DIL) was nominated for the Glanmire Chamber of Commerce Business and Community Awards and was shortlisted for the Social Community Award. Nominations are put forward by members of the public and local businesses and organisations. This nomination by the public reflected the strong community links our school formed with the wider community and local businesses during the inaugural Darkness Into Light Event on May 12th 2018. At the recent Gala Awards Dinner held in Vienna Woods, GCC was chosen as the winner by an independent panel of judges. The school was represented on the night by DIL committee members Ashling Muldowney, Eoin Browne and Louise Purdy.
We would like to congratulate all the members of the school community, in particular the 10 members of our Darkness into Light committee, who were so instrumental in ensuring the receipt of such a prestigious award for the school.
The members of the DIL committee that organised this event which saw over 2000 people take part and raise a final tally of €40,552.33 for Pieta House were:
Ms Ashling Muldowney, Mr Eoin Browne, Ms Louise Purdy, Ms Nell Leahy, Ms Sonya O Brien, Ms Siobhan Quinn, Ms Lisa Hegarty, Ms Hazel Reeves, Ms Grainne Ni Laoithe and Mr Seamus Kennefick
Well done again to all
