To Mark the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge (11th – 15th), celebrate our Irish language, and get us all in the mood for St. Patrick’s Day, all children are asked to dress in green for ‘Lá Glas’ on Friday the 15th of March. It’s a fun day and anything goes, face paints, leprechaun hats etc. The greener the better!
World Book Day will take place in Robertstown NS on April 4th. As part of this day we will be organising the ‘Bring a Book, Buy a Book’ event that was so successful last year. Monies raised this year will go towards library books and literacy programs for the school.
Please if possible start sending in any children’s books in good condition with your child. Books not in adequate condition will be sent back home with your child.
Books on the day will cost €2 each.
This is a great fundraiser for the school while also giving children the chance to buy books at a very reasonable price!!
Mr. O’ Donoghue
3rd class Robertstown welcomed 40 grandparents to their ‘Grandparents Day 2019’. A mass by Fr. Willie Byrne was followed by iPad quizzes, board games and arts and crafts with children performing songs and dancing with grandparents. Children brought in treats and tea/coffee was provided to give grandparents and children an unforgettable day. Thanks to all the Grandparents and Great Grandparents who traveled from as far as Holland to attend the day. We even managed a birthday cake for one Grandmother on her special day!!
