Green & Gold Day For Orbis Ireland

Don't our boys look smart! To support the Ladies Kerry Football Team in the All Ireland we all wore the Green & Gold. As it was a non uniform day all the children contributed to Orbis Ireland. 
ORBIS Ireland was established in 2005 and is currently focused on one major project; to eliminate a highly prevalent and life destroying, blinding disease - trachoma - in some of the poorest regions of southern Ethiopia.
Boys of Scoil Realta raised €225 for Orbis Ireland. 
Kieran Kennelly and a group of 14 recently took the trip to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro for Orbis Ireland. Kieran then came to the school with a fantastic presentation of photos and videos to show us the conditions the people of Ethiopia live and work in, how serious the disease trachoma is and how easily it can be cured with the help of fundraising. A vaccination costs just €5 while the operation costs €6.
It took the group 5 and half day to reach the summit which 5985m high.
