December 2023

Advent calendar

This year’s Advent Calendar was a great success which included lots of fun and treats. Some of the activities that took place: movie day, pizza making, no homework, art all day, Christmas annuals, Christmas jumper day, hot chocolate, extra break time, no Friday test, and a ‘Great Big Christmas Quiz’ hosted by Mr. Connaughton!


All pupils attended mass in Rahara Church on 8th of December to celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The children performed during the ceremony and afterwards we were delighted to have members of the congregation over for tea, coffee and baked goods. 



We are obliged to inform (TUSLA) the statutory Educational Welfare services of the child and family agency if a child has missed 20 days or more in the school year. If your child cannot attend school please provide the school with a written note or email outlining the reason for the absence. For further information see
