A huge community effort resulted in the school being open today. It was fantastic to see people of all ages roll up their sleeves and get the huge volumes of snow off the footpaths. A special thanks to Brian Smyth for turning up with his digger. Without him the school would have been closed today. Last week’s weather was unprecedented and we thank everyone for their patience while the school was closed.
There is a Pre- Communion Mass Practice this Friday in Rathfeigh Church at 1.30p.m. We will be leaving the school at 1.25p.m. If you are unable to give your child a lift please make arrangements with another parent/guardian.
