Sinéad Burke

Sinéad Burke's recognition as the School Volunteer of the Year highlights her extraordinary efforts in making Abacus a more positive and welcoming place for everyone. Sinéad’s numerous nominations reflect her high value to the Abacus community. She has transformed the school's outdoor space and continually galvanizes the PTA, giving her time and effort selflessly.

Sinéad volunteers for all school trips, acts as a liaison for parents, organizes PTA events and fundraisers, and arranges donations and purchases for the school. Her social and friendly demeanor provides immense support to staff and children alike. Her tireless efforts in the gardening club, planting, and arranging for new equipment have significantly enhanced our school grounds.
