From the PA…


One week countdown is on for the RMDS Christmas Fair on Sunday, 10th December. We really hope to see you all there, as it is our large fundraising event of the year. The fair will take place in the school yard, weather permitting. 

And don't forget from this weekend Christmas Trees are on sale in the school yard!!!

Similar to last year, to avoid overcrowding we are suggesting the below times for classes to attend. We appreciate the suggested class times may not suit all and that families with siblings will overlap, that's okay - no one will be turned away! Remember, our Rang 6 will be there for the entire day with their epic Business Class Initiatives! AND our Choir will be performing at 1p.m. 

  • 11a.m - 12p.m - Junior Infants & Senior Infants
  • 12p.m - 1:30p.m - Rang 1, 2 & 5
  • 1:30p.m - 3p.m - Rang 3 & 4
