Canteen roof

Our builders will start work on replacing the roof on the canteen on Monday. Unfortunately that means the canteen will be out of action for all next week and it will hopefully be completed over midterm. Food will still be provided from the assembly area and classrooms will be used for students to eat their food. Study will continue as normal in a different room next week.

Board of Management voting

Reminder: Voting for the Parent representatives on the Board of management takes place today from 8am to 6.30pm with counting at 6.35 pm. All parents are entitled to a vote and ballot papers will be available in Ms Keely's office.

World Mental Health day

Tomorrow is World Mental Health Day and it celebrates awareness for the global community in an empathetic way,

with a unifying voice, helping those feel hopeful by empowering them to take action and to create lasting change.


Tomorrow we will celebrate the day by focusing on the positive. During register we will be asking students to let us know one thing they are grateful for and one bit of advice they would give to help people with their mental health. It can be advice you have given or have gotten to help you or others. We will then put all the answers together and display them in the school.

Students are welcome to bring in their musical instruments tomorrow or Friday to play at break and lunch time.

Crime prevention talk

There will be a crime prevention talk in Rathangan Community Centre next Monday 7th October at 7pm. Local crime issues as well as the topic of anti-social behaviour are some of the topics on the Agenda. All welcome
