Collinstown Celebrates Darkness Into Light

On Saturday the 7th over 110 staff and students from Collinstown Park gathered in the darkness of Corkagh Park to take part in the national ‘Darkness Into Light’ event.

Students from first to sixth year along with a large group of staff arrived at 4am in the carpark to be greeted by a local soul group which really set the atmosphere. We soon set off and enjoyed the sunrise along a five kilometre trail through the park. Along the way there were volunteers, singers and candle displays to encourage the thousands in attendance along the way.

Well done to all of our staff and students who attended this event and raised a substantial sum for a very worthwhile cause.
