RaLET GAA Match

Congratulations to our Junior Gaelic Football teams who enjoyed a very successful outing away to Ashbourne Educate Together last Friday. 
 
After receiving two months of excellent training from our 6th class coaches, Alicia, Ciara, Hollyann, Laura and Maria, this was the first chance for the 4th class players to represent the school and they performed brilliantly. It was also the first time that our teams got to wear the brilliant new kit kindly provided by Laura’s father Ben. 
 
Two friendly matches were played on the same day with boys and girls teams drawn from all 4th and 5th classes. Both teams performed very well with lots of great scores kicked and brave blocks made. 
 
We’re really looking forward to seeing more from this group in the future. RaLET Abú!

STEM Week 2018

STEM Week was in full flow this week in the school. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. There were lots of STEM activities going on, construction work, LEGO, STEM trails and some super science experiments. The week ended with a brilliant science fair in the hall, where all classes in the school demonstrated fun experiments. There was a great scientific buzz about the place. Check out the pictures below.

Harvest 2018

On the 2nd and 3rd of October we had a huge Harvest celebration in the hall! All of the classes had a chance to come and try food which was cooked using fruit and veg grown here in Ralet. This included tomato sauce with pasta, pumpkin soup and apple crumble. There were also fun activities for the children to explore how food feels, smells, looks and sounds. Have a look at the pictures to see! News2day even came along to film what we were doing – you can see  here: 
 
 
We have lots of people to thank for making this celebration so successful. Firstly our many parent helpers who came in on the day and made sure everything ran smoothly! Thank you Priyanka, Christina, Maggie, Olivia, Sarah, Michelle, Yvonne, Sandra, Tricia, Sam and Miriam. Pat the farmer and Caroline also brought some local organic produce to show the children and Pat spoke to the classes about harvest time. 
We had nearly 40 bakers who donated delicious apple crumbles, puddings, scones, bread, cakes, jams and chutneys.
All in all it was a super few days which showed the wonderful community spirit here in RaLET.
We plan to continue to use the space we have here to grow and we will be having a garden Meitheal very soon! Everyone is welcome!
