This Week at RJS

Welcome to our weekly news - updated every Monday.

Monday 23rd - Friday 27th May

On Tuesday 24th May our Senior Sports will take place at Terenure Sports Club.  Children should be collected promptly from school at 1:00pm, ready for a 2 o'clock start.  We look forward to an enjoyable afternoon together, with all classes from Forms Three to Six taking part.  Children should try to wear Clann colours if possible.

Also on Tuesday Form Four will present their final Class Assembly of the year and Form Six will present a selection of their "At  Home" for all children from Forms Two to Five in the Gym.

On Wednesday 25th May Forms Three and Four will be going on their summer outing to Lullymore Heritage Park and Adventure Playground.  Form Five will also be going on their trip to the ever popular "bog" at Causey Farm.

Also on Wednesday Form Six will present a slightly shorter version of their "At  Home" for all children from Kindergarten A to Form One.

On Thursday 26th May the big night will finally arrive for Form Six, after weeks of preparation they will perform for their parents for the very last time - an emotional evening's entertainment is guaranteed, starting at 7:00pm.
