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!

Cheque Presentation

The student council walked down to Tesco in the Jervis shopping centre yesterday to collect money raised through the blue token fundraising. We received €463! The money was used to help fund our annual Christmas dinner, which was a big success! A huge thank you to Karen Hudson for putting us forward, to the staff at Tesco for supporting us and to everyone who donated!


4th Class Volcanoes

IMG_1767 IMG_1768 IMG_1766 IMG_1765 IMG_1764 IMG_1763 IMG_17604th Class were learning about igneous rocks so decided to have a look at how igneous rocks are formed!

First we made our own mountain using flour, water and salt. Then we made our mountains turn into volcanoes by creating an explosion!

We used baking soda, washing liquid and vinegar to create our eruption.

We watched the lava explode down the volcano and this lava will harden to form igneous rocks. It was great fun.

Happy Halloween from 4th class!
