Second class pupils will celebrate their First Holy Communion this Saturday (May 18th) in Rathfeigh Church at 11.00a.m. It is an exciting time for the children as they prepare to receive their third Sacrament. We would like to thank Ms. O’Donoghue for all her hard work in preparing the children for their big day. We also want to thank Agnes Fox for getting the choir prepared for Saturday. We hope that the sun is shining down on the children on Saturday and that they have an enjoyable and spiritual day.
We have been in contact with the Rathfeigh Historical Society with the intention of getting members of the society to come into the school on a regular basis to talk to the children and give them extra information on various aspects of the history of Rathfeigh. We have decided to start with the history of Rathfeigh Church where many of the children were baptised and where the children attending Rathfeigh N.S. receive their First Confession and First Communion.
Photographs from the opening of the library and from the ceilí for St. Patrick’s Day are now on our school website (www.rathfeighns.org). Also on the website are links to mathematical websites which can be used to reinforce what has been learned in class. We are constantly trying to improve the website and your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Our standardised tests in English and Maths for all children in first to sixth classes will take place from Tuesday 28th May to Thursday 30th May.
