Dominican College Announces Astroturf Cyclathon Fundraising Campaign

Dominican College is proud to announce the beginning of a fundraiser to raise money for an astroturf. We are very excited about this Cyclathon fundraiser.

Why do we need an Astroturf Pitch?

Here at Dominican College, we love to exercise and participate in physical activities several times a week. It is a great time to release stress and have a fun time with our classmates. We interviewed a student from our amazing transition year group. We asked them the question, “Would you like an astroturf in the school, if so, how do you think the school would benefit from it?” The student answered, “I definitely think the school would benefit from an astroturf pitch. At our school, we have many talented sports teams. It would make their training more enjoyable. I hope we can make it possible to raise enough money for an astroturf.”

Dominican College is one of the fortunate schools that offer PE as a Leaving Certificate subject. The facilities of an astroturf pitch would mean that students would be able to reach their full sporting and academic potential in modern enjoyable ways.

This facility would also benefit the wider community. The GAA club, Na Fianna and soccer club, Drumcondra F.C already uses our facilities for their underage development.

Support our Cyclathon

To promote the fundraising for the astroturf pitch, we are asking students of all years to participate in a sponsored Cyclathon. Dominican College students will attempt to cycle 1725 kilometres! You may wonder why this distance? Well,1725 metres would bring you to Prouille in Southern France. This was the founding place of the Dominican Sisters.

We are asking students to cycle for around 30 minutes on an exercise bike inside the gate on Griffith Avenue on the 17th December. We are asking every student to try to obtain 15 signatures on their sponsorship card to support our cause. We hope this fundraiser will bring together our great school spirit and fun despite the current pandemic.
