A Thuisti, 

First Communion 

The children in second class will be receiving their First Communion this Saturday in Rathfeigh Church at 11.00a.m. They have been preparing really well for their big day and we wish them all, and their families, a happy and spiritual day. There is a practice for second class and the choir this Thursday 12th in Rathfeigh Church at 1.40p.m. to 2.30p.m. We will be leaving the school at 1.30p.m. We will need help with lifts. If you can’t bring your own child please organise a lift with another parent/guardian. Thanks to Ms. O’Donoghue for preparing the children for their big day. 


The children in 5th/6th class had a mindfulness/well-being class with Una Curran today which went really well. The Minister for Justice (Helen Mc Entee), the Minister of State for Special Education & Inclusion (Josepha Madigan) and local Fine Gael Councillor Suzanne Jamal visited the school today to see our Sensory Room and to discuss our initiatives in relation to mindfulness and well-being. We thank Suzanne Jamal for her recent contribution of €2500 from her Municipal District Allocation which will be used to further improve our recent initiatives in the well-being/mindfulness area. 

School Grounds 

A special thanks to Ingrid for keeping the school grounds (front and back) to a very high standard. We also thank Val Clarke for rebuilding the wall that was damaged at the front of the school. 

Boys Football 

Our Boys’ Gaelic Football team are playing their first game tomorrow in Rathregan (Batterstown) at 1.30p.m. We will be leaving the school at 12.50p.m. We will need help with lifts. If you can’t bring your child to the game please arrange a lift with another parent. 

Education Passport – 6th class 

Last week we e-mailed the ‘My Child’s Profile’ sheet to parents/guardians of sixth class pupils. If you haven’t returned this to the school please do so tomorrow. The children will be filling out the ‘My Profile’ sheet in school this week. The ‘My Child’s Profile’ ‘My Profile’ and the ‘End of Year School Report ‘will be sent to the secondary school that your child will be attending in September. 

‘Odd Socks Day’ 

Thanks to everyone who brought in money last week for ‘Odd Socks Day’ All money received will be sent to Autism Ireland. We collected €156.
