This week was Active School Week in Scoil Chill Ruadhain and everyone had a great time! The activities included a skipathon, school walk, table tennis, basketball, circuits, cycling, dancing and many others. There was a big emphasis on cooperation and taking part, with older classes helping and teaching the younger children. Well done to everyone!

Sciath na Scol Champions!!!

Huge congratulations to our girls’ camogie team who emerged the victors in a nail-biting final against Whitechurch today. The match was held in Páirc Uí Rinn and both teams played excellently, leading to a very tense last few minutes. The final score was 4-2 to 4-1. The moment was made even sweeter when the cup was presented by our own Eoghan O’Connor! Everyone at Scoil Chill Ruadhain is very proud of what the team and their coaches have achieved today. They have been training hard all year and really deserve their win today. Well done everyone!!

Cór Fhéile na Scol

On Tuesday the 28th of March our school choir consisting of children from 4th, 5th and 6th classes took part in the Cór Fhéile na Scol. They performed along with seven other schools to a large audience in the City Hall. The children performed three songs from the ‘Trolls’ movie – True Colours, The Sound of Silence and Tá an Móthú seo go hÁlainn. They have been working very hard over the last few months with rehearsals at lunch time, during school and after school and it certainly paid off as their performance was outstanding! Well done to our fabulous school choir, you are a credit to the school. Also a great big thanks to Mr Kennedy, Ms Cremin and Ms. Norris for preparing them for their perfromance.
