All proceeds go directly to RMDS to pay for educational resources that are not funded by the Department of Education and Science.
Our current fundraising focus is the sensory room, a calm, multisensory space for children who can become overwhelmed by the busy classroom, or who may be anxious or unsettled. Work has started on this room, but there’s a lot more to be done. The cost for the complete fit-out of this room is approximately €5,200.
The sensory room provides a calm space for children who can become overwhelmed by the busyness of the classroom. This ability to take a break allows the child to return to the class calm and centred. If completed, it would include features like bubble mirrors, fibre optic lights, an infinity tunnel and other elements to enhance visual and tactile stimulation.
The sensory room was initially developed for children with additional needs but its use will expand throughout the school. Children who may be a little anxious or unsettled can use it to take a break, to calm themselves and to help them cope with the stresses they have been dealing with. We’re very grateful that we can offer this very important facility to the children of RMDS.
