3rd May, 2022.
As I mentioned last week we have received a Facebook grant to the value of €21,564. The application was cross generational. It will be used to help improve the digital literacy skills of the elderly in our community -Rathfeigh Nursing Home, the ‘Tuesday Club’ at the RST Centre and adult computer classes in the school. We will also use the grant to purchase chrome books and interactive whiteboards to assist the children in their digital literacy skills. We look forward to working on this project over the next few years.
New Junior Infants
We would like to invite parents/guardians and their children starting school in September to the school on Thursday June 9th from 1.30p.m. to 2.30p.m.
The girls are playing this Wednesday in Skryne against Gibbstown from 12.30 – 1.10p.m. We will be leaving the school at 12.10p.m. We will need help with lifts. If you can’t bring your own child to the match please organise a lift for your child.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Councillor Suzanne Jamal. It was through Suzanne’s Municipal District Allocation that we received €2500 from Meath County Council to further develop the mindfulness and well-being initiatives in the school.
