Hi Powerstown families! Want to help our school win sports equipment or some funding for sports equipment? Powerstown ENTS is participating in Aldi's Rugby competition. If you shop in Aldi and you spend €30 or more ask for a rugby sticker. If we collect enough to fill a poster we can send it away and be in with a chance to win €50,000 or some fantastic sports equipment. The poster will be posted up outside our parents room. Children and families are welcome to bring in the stickers and put them up on this poster. Any support you can give us would be much appreciated
