Huge congratulations to our pupils who were winners in the Waterford Teacher Centre poetry competition. We are so proud of you. Well done again to Tom & Jamie!

Today, on the 21st May, we are thinking of our 5th & 6th class pupils who would have been celebrating their Confirmation today. We hope you all enjoyed your day today and we look forward to celebrating with you in the not too distant future.

In order to mark this day, Ms Cahill and Ms Casey sent a Confirmaton photograph template to all pupils. Parents then took a photo of their Confirmation children with this template and sent them back to the teachers. Have a look at this lovely video which Ms Cahill compiled. We love it and think it's a lovely momento for parents to have. Thanks to Ms Casey & especially to Ms Cahill for putting it all together.

Our pupils in 2nd class were very busy designing and trying out sailboats as part of a Science activity. Well done! Have a look at these photos!

Aoibheann Cummins, one of our 2nd class pupils wrote a letter to our Minister for Health, Simon Harris and he must have been very impressed with her letter as he took the time out of his very busy schedule and wrote back to her! Well done Aoibheann!

We are thinking of our 2nd class pupils today on what should have been their First Holy Communion Day. We will celebrate it in time and it will be all the more special.

This is a video clip which staff members of Rathgormack National School put together for our pupils during the Covid 19 pandemic. We miss the children and although we are communicating daily with parents via the Aladdin Connect App and sending them school work, we wanted to let the children know that we are thinking of them and we look forward to being back in school.
