2018 Christmas Fair

This year our Rathmore Kids call for even more cheer
As Christmas falls early for us – just this one year
For the Rathmore School Christmas Fair falls on a Thursday
The 6th – and be sure –  it’ll go on the whole day

There’ll be songs and poems aplenty, music and hymns
And theatre so dramatic, you’ll forgive us our sins
There’ll be cakes and buns and even some quiche
Just make sure to come early to get yourself a seat

Our annual raffle helps raise much needed funds
Please, please offer donations – it’ll make more people come
Cos they’ll think they will win – and it’s great, cos they can
They’ll be as rich as kings, or even a wise man
We cannot take cards, so bring cash on the day
and support the kids of Rathmore as they sing, come what may


Donation of Prizes
There is a donation box inside the front door of the conservatory or donations can be left into the office.

Donation of Baked Goods

Donations of baked goods would be greatly appreciated. Please leave donations into the Garden Room on Wednesday 5th December between 1.30pm and 3.00pm, or alternatively into the office during the school day.

Christmas Fair 2018

The Christmas Fair will be held on Thu 6th Dec 2018.

A full list of class performance times will be published shortly.

Witch & Wizard Walk

The Green Schools Committee held a “Witch Walk” (non- uniform day) on Friday 26th October. Children were invited to dress up coming to school and a short walk around the school grounds took place for each class. In keeping with our Green Schools Recycling Aims, children were encouraged to make some part of the costumes from homemade/recyclable materials and not buy them.

Some simple suggestions included: • Old clothes • Old costumes. • Recyclable materials. • Cardboard boxes.

Cross Country Photos

On Wednesday 17th October forty-eight Rathmore N.S. Cross Country runners ventured to Valleymount N.S. for the Annual West Wicklow Cumann na mBunscoil Cross Country. This annual event is hosted by Ms. Geraldine Moynihan (Principal) and her staff in Valleymount N.S. along with many local volunteers. We were fortunate to have a dry day. We had twelve teams of boys and girls who qualified in previous weeks from their class runs. All our teams competed very well and won individual and team medals.

This would not have been possible without the help of the many parents who supervised teams and offered support on the day. Also thank you to Ms. Malone, and to Ciara Jameson who collated all the results for our teams on the day.
