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.
