Get your school involved in Trick or Treat this year! Trick or Treat is a great way to support Temple Street while having brilliant fun at the same time. It’s the perfect way for your students to make the most of this fangtastic time of year!
We encourage as many schools as possible to take part. In fact, we had over 300 Creche’s and Primary Schools take part in 2013 as well as over 50 Secondary schools! They held Trick or Treat days in the schools where the children dressed in all sorts of fancy dress costumes and brought in a donation for Temple Street. It was a frighteningly successful fundraiser!
We would love to have as many Creche, Primary and Secondary Schools getting involved in Trick or Treat as possible. It is a great way for the students to get involved in the Halloween season in a fun and charitable environment.
We have two options for Secondary Students to get involved.
Sell Trick or Treat lollipops in Shopping Centres
We have multiple locations across the country where we are looking for support to sell Trick or Treat lollies to the public. If your school is interested we would love to hear from you! Michael Stanley’s Transition Year Students in Castleknock Community College got involved last year and they really enjoyed being out and about on the day.
“It is the most positive rewarding experience for the students and gives them a fantastic opportunity to give back to the hospital. They thoroughly enjoyed taking part and we will be back on board again this year.”
Hold a Trick or Treat Day in your School!
There are so many ways that you can celebrate Halloween on school grounds. The most popular is to hold a fancy dress day for students. Each student who comes to school in a costume has to make a donation to the Trick or Treat collection. I’m sure you’ll agree the students enjoy having the chance to wear anything but their school uniforms!
“We did a fancy dress day and sold “witches brew” in our secondary school. The kids loved the opportunity to dress up and loved the challenge of reaching a fundraising goal.”
