Our automatic weather station was officially launched on Thursday 16th September. We had the pleasure of welcoming Deputy Mayor of Fingal, Cllr. Daniel Whooley, Joanne Donnelly from Met Eireann, as well as some representatives from Fingal County Council. Deirdre’s 3rd Class attended the launch and they will observe and record the weather for the year. You will be able to view our weather station live online on https://wow.met.ie/ in the coming week.
The automatic weather station records wind speed/direction, rainfall, temperature, humidity and sunlight.

RaLET were on News2day again this week. We are the first school in North County Dublin to receive an Automatic Weather Station by Fingal County Council. Kevin Vallely, who works for Fingal, came to our school to present Deirdre’s 3rd Class with the weather station. RTE Newsday came out to our school and had a chat with the boys and girls about the weather station. The station will be officially launched on Thursday.

The Irish Times Newspaper came out to visit RaLET on our first day back open. They were so impressed by all the boys and girls, especially our wonderful junior infants, who were starting their very first day in our school.
