Our second class are busy preparing for their First Penance which they will receive on Thursday 29th March at 2pm and their First Holy Communion which they will receive from Fr. Gear on Sunday 13th May in Rathgormack Church. 

Also, our fifth and sixth class boys and girls will be receiving their Confirmation from Fr. O'Mahoney (a native of Coolnahorna) on Thursday, March 22nd in Clonea Church.

All our students from junior to sixth class are enjoying gymnastics classes which began on Friday 24th February.  We will also have drama classes for all classes after the easter holidays. Swimming classes for first, second and fourth class pupils will also begin after the easter holidays.

Work in ongoing on our Green Schools initiative.  The theme for 2011/2013 is Biodiversity.  In keeping with this we congratulate our third and fourth class pupils, who came third in their section in the Atlantic Corridor/Ericsson "National School Science Competition" in Carlow on Friday 24th February, with their project based on "Living Things".  This qualifies them to go forward to the National final which will be held in Athlone in March.  The team who travelled to Carlow along with Mrs Power were:  Laurence Hearne, Saoirse Hennebry, Paul Guiry & Caoimhe Hennebry - well done on your great success!!

Our U-13 quiz team: Samantha Innocent, Eoin Dowley, Aaron Gleeson and Donnchadh Gough were narrowly beaten in the Carrick-on-Suir Credit Union local area quiz.  In the same event our U-11 team Avril Norris, Leah Greene, Karen Murray and Keeley Corbett- Barry came third. Well done to all.

Congratulations to Eoin Dowley who was the Rathgormack winner in the local Lions Club Poster Competition.
