A Thuisti,


The installation of the Defibrillator, which will be located outside the main door of the school, will take place this Friday at 2.00p.m. We would like to invite parents/guardians to the school this Friday for the official installation of the defibrillator . Its installation has the potential to save lives in future years. Having the D-Fib at the school offers pupils, staff, visitors and the community a better chance of survival should a sudden cardiac arrest strike. Please try to be in attendance this Friday at 2.00p.m. for the installation as this will increase more awareness among the Rathfeigh/Skryne community.

Rathfeigh Parents’ Association

The Parents’ Association AGM was really well attended last week. I was delighted to be in attendance and it was great to get positive feedback and advice from those in attendance. The Parents’ Association play a vital role in our school so please continue to support the fundraising events as the money is pumped back into the school. The Draft Constitution of the Parents’ Association of Scoil Mhuire Naofa Rathfeigh will be on the school website in the next few days. Please contact Bridget if you would like to give any feedback on it.
