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:

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!
