PUPILS at Holy Family National School got to soak their teachers on Tuesday when staff took the Ice Bucket Challenge – and now the gauntlet had been thrown down to three more schools!

One lucky child from each senior class got the opportunity to dump a bucket of icy water over a teacher’s head at the end of the school day.

“As you can imagine there were plenty of volunteers,” said school principal Ed O’Brien. 

“The whole thing came about because a number of the teachers had been nominated separately so we decided to do them all together,” Ed explained.

Children were encouraged to donate 50 cent each and all the teachers donated €5 for the ice bucket challenge in aid of Motor Neuron disease.

“We’re delighted to do it, Motor Neuron disease is particularly distressing so we’re happy to do our little bit and help the cause,” said Ed.

Instead of nominating individual people, the Holy Family participants decided to nominate three other schools in the Tralee area; Spa National School, Caherleaheen National School and CBS Primary School.

“Hopefully they’ll all join in because it’s a great cause” said Ed.
