All of our classes returned to school on Monday 15th March. It’s been wonderful to see the lovely smiles and happy faces coming through the gates and to hear the hum of activity around the school again.
Please remember to complete the Return to School Declaration on the Aladdin Connect app every time you wish your daughter to return to school following any absence (even one school day). The declaration can only be filled out after 3pm on the day your child is marked absent, and it should only be completed on the evening before or morning of the return to school.
Please ensure you are familiar with all of our policies and procedures in relation to Covid-19 (see below).
It is vital that all parents read this document and familiarise themselves with its content.
Our virtual graduation for our forty-two 6th class pupils took place on Wednesday 24th June. We looked back on their time with us in the school and wished them well as they prepare for their transition to secondary school and embark upon this new, exciting chapter in their lives.
They are an amazing group of girls and wonderful ambassadors for our school. We will miss them, but we’re excited to hear what wonderful things they get up to and what bright and exciting futures lie ahead of them. You can view our graduation ceremony here.

Rathangan gets its name from ‘Iomgháins Rath’, the remains of which still can be seen at the top of the town.
Throughout the years, the town has been shaped by many influences and events such as the 1798 Rebellion, the Grand Canal and Bórd na Móna.
