Well Done Erins Own!

Congratulations to Erins Own who won the U21 Hurling County Final against Ballincollig two weeks ago! We were delighted to see past pupils carrying the cup today!



School Science Fair

Today was the first day of our school Science Fair. Students from 2nd to 6th prepared a range of experiments and then set them up in the school hall. Classes were invited to the hall throughout the day to view the displays and to conduct some experimenting of their own. The exhibitors did a wonderful job of explaining and demonstrating their experiments which included The Lungs, The Heart, Friction, Magnets, Soundwaves, Circuits, Friction & Gravity, Quick Sand and The Centre of Gravity. Well done to all involved!

Come to our Book Fair!

g9qH7ZfWVSd5zBBS.jpgNext week, we will be hosting a school book fair here in Scoil Chill Ruadhain. This is a wonderful opportunity for our school community to buy some great books and for every book sold the school will receive a large percentage to purchase books for our libraries – last year we received over €3000! It’s also a super time to start Christmas shopping!

Children will be given the opportunity to view the books on Monday 14th and Tuesday 
15th. Parents and other members of the community are invited to come to the school hall to buy books on Wednesday 16th from 9:15am – 9.45am and on Thursday 17th from 9:15am – 9.45am and 1:15pm – 4:30pm. Children will also be given the chance to buy books on these days.

We look forward to seeing you there!
