Cake Sale

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the pupils of 6th Class,  we would like to express our sincere gratitude at the wonderful support of the 6th Class cake sale last Friday.  The children raised a grand total of €560!  We are so proud of the children in 6th Class for organising such a fantastic event & we have already purchased some new soccer balls for the yard out of their fundraising efforts.

Once again many thanks for your support of this event,

Ms. Horgan & Ms. Sheridan (6th Class teachers)

Sixth Class Cake Sale

Dear parents,

My name is Caoimhe Deane & I am in 6th Class.  As we are nearly finished our time in Scoil Chill Ruadháin, Brooklodge, we are organising a cake sale for this Friday, June 18th, as we would like to fundraise for school equipment & leave a legacy behind us when we leave this school.  I wrote a poem to give you all the information you & your child need:

Active Week

Everyone in Scoil Chill Ruadháin greatly enjoyed getting involved in Active Week this week!

Engineer’s Week

We had a great week for Engineer’s Week, both at school and at home! The children were involved in lots of different engineering projects including designing robots, building bridges, making boats and creating rockets, to name but a few. We learned about the International Space Station and discovered the best materials to use to build parachutes and to protect a dropped egg. To see more of their amazing creations please visit our class blogs. The children also took part in virtual Engineer’s Week Shows. We’re looking forward to next year already!

Festive Countdown!

Christmas is definitely in the air in Scoil Chill Ruadháin!
