It's the time of year when some of you may be undertaking a good spring clean around your house. Well thinking along the same lines of thought, our school website has had a "spring face lift," a version 2.0 if you will. I'm sure you'll agree it looks more refreshing, vibrant and more user friendly.
The website still retains its' original address and will remain as a useful port of call for information, a digital newsletter which will be updated regularly detailing all that goes on in Rathgar National School. This, the first Principal's Blog will be my own page to let you know what is happening now and in the future weeks, as well as some musings and thoughts straight from my desk to you. The staff and I are excited for this relaunch and I must extend a word of gratitude to Jonny Lindsay for putting together our website and helping us to get version 2.0 up and running.
A formal launch will take place at a later stage which you will be notified of.
Items to note this month are:
1. Swimming - continues with 1st-3rd classes
2. World Book Day - 6th March
3. French classes - After school Wed/Thurs
4. Tennis - After school Wed
5. Visit from the local Vet
6. Multi-coloured Macarena - 14th March
7. Teaching Practice - Begins 19th March for 3 weeks
Until the next blog I will leave you with a quote from Confucius: "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." I think this is apt as the new website begins its' life online!
Now, back to learning the steps for the Macarena...
