Junior Infant Aistear

We have been playing with water in our own pond and are learning about the life cycle of the frog.

We have a Travel Agents in our classroom where we are booking and researching holidays, making lists for holidays and exchanging money.

We are building Sydney Harbour Bridge this week and will be building other famous landmarks and buildings in the coming weeks. pond life

Green Schools Committee

The Green Schools Committee met last Friday to discuss ways we could save water as a school. They watched a slideshow presentation before discussing it and brainstorming new ideas.

At our next meeting they will design posters to display around the school so that we can raise awareness about this important issue.


Pupils of the Week and Most Improved

Well Done to the junior pupils of the week and most improved children from the week before Christmas!


6th class visit Áras an Uachtaráin

On Tuesday December 14th President Michael D. Higgins unveiled the ‘People’s Acorn’ in the gardens of Áras an Uachtaráin. This was a really special day for the current 6th class in Rutland NS as they had the fantastic opportunity to visit Áras an Uachtaráin to witness the unveiling, having been involved in the project since November 2016. The People’s Acorn is a sculpture created by Rachel Joynt. The sculpture is a 1916 themed piece which commemorates the centenary of the 1916 Rising. It contains a time capsule of school childrens’ thoughts and wishes and won’t be opened until 2116. 6th class were fortunate enough to be part of this amazing project and have their thoughts and wishes documented for future generations to read. We were 1 of only 7 schools chosen to be part of the project so it was an amazing honour. Children from every class also donated lots of pencils which were used to create the sculpture. Here is a link to a video which tells you a little bit more about the project. It’s a day we’ll never forget!
