St Francis Senior National School at Clonshaugh Drive received a super facelift, enhancing the school’s exterior and creating a more welcoming outdoor environment for the students’ return to school. The Dublin 17 facility was taken over by 14 employees from Speed Fibre Group over three days who carried out enhancement works.

The Speed Fibre Group team worked together to engage in a host of outdoor activities aimed at improving the school’s appearance. Speed Fibre Group is an Irish telecommunications company that is home to Enet and Magnet+.

Company volunteers donated their time and resources to the school, which is located close to the Magnet + office in Clonshaugh, and installed new signage for the school, beautified the outdoor spaces with vibrant plants and planters, created colourful murals on school walls along with extensive weeding and gardening to tidy in the school grounds.

This volunteering activity is part of Speed Fibre Group’s dedication to corporate social responsibility and community engagement.

Dee Kiely, Principal at St Francis SNS said the activity has a fantastic impact on the school and was welcomed by the students when they returned to the classroom recently: “All of us at St Francis Senior NS would like to extend our thanks to Speed Fibre Group for their three days of hard work and commitment. The students were delighted with how their yard now looks and it definitely helped make the return to school that bit easier for everyone.”

Lisa Gillivan, Marketing Manager and Head of the CSR Committee at Speed Fibre Group, said: “Our commitment to corporate social responsibility runs deep within the fabric of our company culture. The three-day volunteering event at St. Francis Senior National School exemplifies our steadfast commitment to giving back to the communities where we operate. We are immensely proud of our employees for their enthusiasm and tireless efforts in creating positive changes at the school.”
