SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

21st June 2018


From the Principal’s desk:

Thank you to the RMDS Choir (with children from R2-R6) and the RMDS Orchestra Ensemble (with children from R3-R6) who put on excellent performances for both their parents and the children of the school last week. It is great to see the progress they are making all the time. Thank you to Therese Coogan and Aoileann Farley for all their work within the school. Also thank you to Ann Swift (Art – R2 & Finn’s – R5 mum), Conor Lenihan (Fergus’s – R4 dad) and Catherine McCarthy (Kieran’s – R4 mum) who give so generously of their time to ensure the children can benefit from these wonderful experiences.  We are looking forward to the possibilities of next year already!
