Chq Presentation

Schools play a very important part in helping Make-A-Wish grant wishes.  School visits not only spread the magic of Make-A-Wish, but also educate students on how they can help support us. Children who are living with a life-threatening medical condition spend most of their time in hospitals undergoing painful treatments instead of attending school. 

Young people really identify with what it must be like for another child to be sick and restricted in what they can do.  The School Visit Representative volunteer role involves visiting Primary and Secondary schools around Ireland and informing students on the work that Make-A-Wish do and how they can help. In some cases, we offer a cheque presentation to schools that have raised money, to thank students personally for their hard work.

Time Commitment: Throughout the school year
