6th Class Graduation 2020

The class of 2020 went down in RaLET history on Wednesday night as they took part in the first ever virtual graduation. We had a Zoom call with over seventy-five households tuning in, children, parents and teachers. It was a great night and we will miss all the children very much and we wish them the very best for the future. Below are some highlights from the night.

A Successful Active Home Week

Well done to all who participated in the Active Home Week last week. It was fantastic to see so many people getting out and getting active.
The Active Class Race was a great hit. As a school we covered a whopping 1553km. This is roughly the same as cycling from Lusk to Geneva, Switzerland. It was a very competitive race but the winning class, with an amazing 247.13 km is… Anne’s Class! Well done all!
We hope everyone enjoyed Active Home Week. The video below shows some of our school
community getting active. Remember, getting active isn’t limited to one week a. Find something you enjoy and get active!
