As a number of pupils were absent over the last two weeks we have been unable to take the class photograph for the booklet. We will be taking the class photo at 9.00a.m. on Monday 25th. This is the final date that the photo will be accepted by the printers. The photo will be taken on this day regardless of absentees. Please ensure your child is in attendance for this photo. We need a large number of pupils in 3rd, 4th and 5th to sing in the choir. Please let me know tomorrow if your child can sing in the choir.

Jackie’s 100 Mile Challenge!
Our Caretaker, Jackie Ross, is currently undertaking the 100 Miles Mater Hospital Challenge. She is hoping to run 100 miles during February with all money raised going to purchase specialised chairs for chemotherapy patients. It is a big commitment that Jackie is undertaking and we are all very proud of her huge efforts. If you would like to donate a few euro for this worthy cause please drop into Rathfeigh school (Donation Jar at reception) . Well done, Jackie.
The school is closed on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd February.
