SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

26th October 2017

From the Principal’s desk:

During the week we had some exciting visitors here in RMDS. We had principals from primary schools and teacher training colleges in Uganda visit us through the Réalt Programme run through DCU IoE which aims to enhance teaching and learning in Africa and Ireland. The visitors accompanied some of the children in Rang 3 to Forest School, learning a little about what we do here. They also visited some of the classes and were treated to some wonderful songs and poems while the children had the opportunity to hear some traditional Ugandan songs. Some of the children even had the opportunity to ask some questions about what school is like in Uganda. It was a pleasure having them here with us!

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

Enjoy the midterm break everyone! I’m looking forward to seeing you all back here safe and well on the 6th November!
