Butterfly Fly Away

Ms. Bermingham’s Junior Infants have been learning all about caterpillars for the past few weeks. We even had some caterpillars join our class! Today, we were finally able to release our butterflies in our wonderful school garden. It was lovely to have 6th class join us as we let our beautiful butterflies go. We told them to say a special hello to Ollie for us.

Fundraiser for the Ukraine

Before the Easter holidays, the fantastic Student Council organised a fundraiser in aid of the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

Everyone wore blue and yellow to show our support and together we raised over €400!!

We are very proud of the amazing support of everyone in Rutland St. NS for such a worthy cause.

Thank you everyone for your incredible generosity.

VIPs at the Department of Education

Today was a very exciting day in Rutland National School.

4 of our pupils were asked to visit the Department of Education for a photoshoot.

They got to meet with the Minister for Education, Norma Foley and even got to sit at her desk!!

Keep an eye out in the newspapers next week and see if you can spot any photos of them.

Halfway through our first year at school!

It is hard to believe we are almost halfway through the year. Junior infants have settled into ‘big school’ so well. Ms. Bermingham is so proud of them and how much they have learned so far. This month, we learned all about the North and South Poles. We were Polar Explorers in our role play corner where we travelled to the Arctic/Antarctic. We made igloos with our blocks and sensory snow. We also played with water and did some floating and sinking experiments. The children have learned so many new words relating to our Polar theme, like “hatch”, “huddle”, “flipper”, “frost”, and “waddle.” It is great to hear them using them in class with one another.

We were so excited to get hot lunches this month and the boys and girls are loving them! They get so excited for lunchtime! We also celebrated Stephen’s birthday this month and surprised him by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and making him lovely birthday cards.
