Halloween Fancy Dress and Pumpkin Competition

We will be having our annual Halloween Fancy Dress on Friday October 28th. On that day the children can come to school dressed up in costume. We will also be having our Pumpkin Competition with small prizes in each class for the best designed pumpkin. Any child who wants to enter the competition can design their pumpkin at home and bring it into the school hall on the morning of October 28th.

Parents’ Association Halloween Disco

Rathfeigh and Skryne Parents’ Associations are organising a joint Halloween Disco for the pupils of both schools on Friday October 28th. It will be held in Skryne School Hall. There will be a disco from 6.30p.m. to 7.30p.m. for Junior Infants to 2nd classes. Then from 8.00p.m. to 9.30p.m. there will be a disco for 3rd to 6th classes. Refreshments will be available throughout. Tickets will be €5.00 per person. Tickets can be purchased from the Parents’ Association the week before the disco. More information about ticket purchase next week.


Swimming continues this Wednesday for the children in 1st to 4th class. The children are making great progress and are really enjoying the lessons. The swimming instructors are giving great feedback on their progress which is great to see. This Wednesday is the final lesson.

Gaelic Football

The girls’ gaelic football quarter final takes place this Thursday in Gibbstown at 1.30p.m. (against Ballinacree). They will be leaving the school at 12.40p.m. Please arrange a lift for your child if you can’t attend yourself. Best of luck to all the girls and Ms. Reynolds.

Vision and Hearing Screening for 1st Class

First class will have Vision and Hearing screening in the school on Thursday October 20th. The HSE normally do this screening when the children are in Junior Infants but this was delayed because of Covid-19.

Tin Whistle

The children in 1st to 6th class have been enthusiastically learning the tin whistle last week. Great progress is being made by them all. Please encourage your child to practise nightly. Thanks to Mrs Vaughan for teaching the tin whistle to all the children in 1st to 6th class.

Maths Week

This week is Maths Week. We will be doing a variety of interesting maths challenges over the course of the week. Please log onto for resources that your children may be interested in.

Interactive Whiteboards

The interactive whiteboards were installed in the four classrooms today. Once again, we thank Facebook (Meta) for their generous grant, which will benefit the children in Rathfeigh for many years to come.
