SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

16th May 2019


From the Principal’s desk:

A reminder that the Junior Infant Reception Day for incoming Junior Infants is Thursday, 23rd May.  The present Junior Infants will have no school that day.


The school will be closed on Friday, 24th May as the school will be used as a polling station.

And a reminder for this last term regarding punctuality…..

Everyone is expected to be on time for school - that means being at the gate by 8.30am. Children who arrive in class after 8.40am will be marked late.


Please check for lost property at the gate. All items left at the weekend will be donated to charity.

RMDS Soccer

Fantastic news to report with the RMDS Gladiators making it to the plate final. It was a tense fiery game against local rivals KPS with the game finishing 5-3.  Everybody played their part in securing the win. Altan was the hero upfront with an incredible four goal tally. Our back line (George, Billy, Luke and Patrick) were impenetrable in the last 10 minutes when we hung on to a precious two goal lead, despite the tides of endless KPS pressure. Lenna was a great introduction at half time with her agility and speed. We now march onto the final which will be held in St. Killians in a fortnight’s time, eager to get our hands on the trophy.
