SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

4th May 2017


From the Principal’s desk:


Congratulations to all the children from Junior Infants right up to Rang 6 for their Write-A-Book Projects this year. It is a great achievement for each child to have their very own book to present.

Write – A – Book assembly took place this morning with all children going home with a certificate acknowledging the hard work and dedication that went into each book. Thank you to all the teachers, staff and parents who supported this great project! It is great to see the enthusiasm reading and writing brings! Also, thank you to our highly esteemed judges who were charged with the difficult decision of judging the books from Rang 3 – Rang 6.

RMDS Senior Soccer


Fantastic soccer news as our Senior soccer team were crowned league champions. It was a must win game in Herbert Park against our local rivals Sandford. Sandford went into the match undefeated and full of confidence. Sandford dominated possession early on and indeed for the rest of the match. Our defense stayed strong and organised throughout and stifled many a Sandford attack.

As strong as we were in defence, we were smart in attack and Clara, woman of the match, scored the goal we desperately wanted. We went into half time one up but were pegged back early on in the second. Things could have gotten worse but Sandford missed an important penalty. Time was ticking and the league looked to be slipping away from us.. until Cal scored a hero's goal, 2-1: A brilliant counter attacking move using his speed and an excellent finish. 5 minutes were left on the clock but it seemed like an eternity. It was an incredibly hard fought, backs against the wall job to keep our precious lead... and we did it, just about hanging on! An incredible achievement and congratulations to all those on the squad!
