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.
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.
