Some Photos from Red Day!

Go Red for Marymount!

Many thanks to everyone for all your support yesterday as we celebrated the 30 year Anniversary of the Cork double with our RED DAY. We are delighted to announce that we raised €1084.92 for Marymount Hospice.

It was a great day for everyone in Brooklodge NS! I hope you had an opportunity to watch us on Virgin Media news yesterday (12.30 and 5.30pm). It is still available on catch-up online.

See below link to the report on our RED DAY which appeared on today’s Echo.


Odd Shoe Day!

A huge thank you to everyone who got involved or contributed to our Odd Shoe Day today! It was wonderful to see staff and pupils alike getting into the spirit of things!


Alana’s Butterfly Life

Baby Alana and her mum called in recently to collect the cheque for money raised during our non-uniform day. Alana’s cousins are pupils in Scoil Chill Ruadhain and her sister is a past pupil. We were delighted to give our support and to meet Alana.

Down Syndrome Awareness Day

We were delighted to support World Down Syndrome Awareness Day again this year. Speakers came to speak to the children about Down Syndrome and everyone wore brightly coloured odd socks!

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!

Coffee Morning for Autism Awareness Week

The children will be taking part in many activities throughout the week and the whole school will be wearing blue jeans on Friday to mark the occasion.

Well done to all the children for their wonderful performances during our two Carol Services! Well done also to our fantastic school orchestra led by Yvonne McCarthy who opened the show on both nights and to our choir who serenaded us all as we arrived!
