Also on Wednesday 5th June Form Five will be travelling to Causey Farm in Co. Meath.  This is always a hugely popular trip, not least for the chance to get covered in mud with a jump in the bog!!

On Friday 7th June the final RJS Choir session of the year will take place.  Many thanks to Miss Bowens for all of her dedication to the choir this year and congratulations to the choir members who have produced some memorable performances through the year.

On Monday 10th June our annual Art and Handwork Exhibition will take place from 4-7pm.  We look forward to welcoming family and friends, as well as prospective and incoming pupils, to share some of the super art and crafts produced by the children across the year.  Please remember the school will not be open during normal hours on the day of the Exhibition.

On Tuesday 11th June our Art and Handwork Exhibition will be taken down.  Could all children please remember to bring in a large, strong bag to bring home all their lovely art!

On Wednesday 12th June Ailbhe Gerrard will visit Form Six to talk to them about her beekeeping and honey-making ventures in Co. Tipperary.

Also on Wednesday 12th June Kindergarten A and B will be going on their annual Teddy Bears' Picnic to Belgrave Square and the Resource children will be going for a trip to Palmerston Park on the same morning.

On Thursday 13th June Form Six will go on their annual trip to Palmerston Park for fun, games and a picnic.  They will also be returning to the school in the evening for their Movie Night with a slice of pizza and yet more treats, before watching a film on the big screen. Thanks to the parents for organising this special event.

On Friday 14th June the school will close for the summer holidays with all classes ending at 12:30pm.  We will enjoy a whole school assembly together, the end of year slideshow and a presentation to Form Six, our 'Class of 2019', who will be, very sadly, leaving us.  We wish them every success and happiness and hope to see them back soon, full of the news from their new adventures.

Thanks to everyone for making this such a wonderful year together.  We wish all our families a happy, sunny and fun-filled summer and look forward to welcoming everyone back on Tuesday 3rd September (classes end at 12:30pm).
