Saint James’s primary school community will be taking part in a sponsored cycle on May 6, where staff and students will cycle 400km on a stationary bike, the distance from Dublin to Mizen Head, Cork.

This year, Saint James’ is opening a second class that caters for children with autism living in the community of Dublin 8 and surrounding areas. All proceeds raised from this cycle will go towards the fundraising for a sensory cubbie for these classes, which costs €20,000.

On its GoFundMe page, the school wrote: “This cubbie would provide invaluable support to the students with autism in our school, and to our community at large.The pod would meet the regulatory needs of the students with autism in our school, allowing them to engage in their  academic lessons throughout the day.

“It would be a major asset for our children, but unfortunately will remain out of reach for us as a school community without the support of generous donations.”
