Cuala Academy had their Annual Fundraiser Sponsored Walk on Saturday morning 9th March.
The 2007, 2006 and 2005 boys and girls were joined by our friends the 2004 boys and girls who have recently moved on to their respective juvenile sections in Cuala G.A.A. Club. The misty, mysterious Killiney Hill provided a two-peaks-challenge which all the Academy children, their siblings and their parents surmounted with great gusto.
The organising committee had done a great job, with various age groups leaving at 15 minute intervals. When the groups returned from their mountain slog they were provided with fruit, sucrose-replacement capsules and certificates of participation.
The rain held off. Parents parked off Killiney Hill, as requested, and walked up to the start as a warm up. The children brought back their sponsorship forms. Christy the dog got a certificate of participation.When we left, you would hardly have know we were ever there will all the paper recycled and the fruit skins and cores recycled. Thanks to the organising committee and to all who helped and participated. The day was a great success. Thanks also to our sponsors who were very generous. With everybody’s help we have raised €9,000 and might make our €10,000 target with the contributions of those who were unable to make it on the day.

Siúlóid Urraithe Acadamh Cuala 9 Márta 2013
Bhaineamar go léir an-taitneamh as an tsiúlóid urraithe maidin Shathairn 9 Márta. Rinne an grúpa eagraithe an-obair. Tá moladh mór ag dul dóibh agus do gach duine a chabhraigh nó a ghlac páirt. D’fhág na grúpaí Acadaimh agus ár gcairde sna grúpaí 2004 a d’fhág an tAcadamh i mbliana agus a bhog ar aghaidh go dtí coistí na n-óg i gCuala. Nuair a chríochnaigh na páistí agus a dtuismitheoirí an tsiúlóid bronnadh torthaí agus taibléidí fuinnimh orthu.
Tá glaoite ar na an gCoimisinéir um Chearta Daonna ag Milo an Madra mar go bhfuair Christy an Cú Teastas Glacadh Páirte ach nach bhfuair seisean. Tá súil againn nach snámh spairne a bheidh anseo.
Tháínig €8,000 isteach ó na páistí ar an lá. Ocht míle buíochas le gach duine a thug go flaithiúil. Tháinig €1,000 ón lucht urraithe. Míle buíochas leo siúd. Má fhaighimid €1,000 ó na daoine nár éirigh leo teacht ar an lá beidh Seán Cisteoir an-sásta ar fad.
