Homework Activities during school closure
I will continue to post activities each week for all of my 6th class girls . I will try to keep the activities as straight forward as possible so they are easy to follow but also beneficial. I will also post the answers to the work for you to self correct. I will also ask for some of your work to be sent to me each week and I will give you feedback on this work. Keep following the advice of our medical experts with regard to hand washing and social distancing and I will see you all soon. In the meantime take care, keep up with your reading and keep safe and well.

The big day is almost here with only a few days to go! Confirmation will be at 11 am on Thursday 5th March. The girls are busy practising their singing and prayers in preparation for the big day. Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday!
Spelling Bee Competition
We held our Spelling Bee competition in school this week to choose our representative to go to Trim on the 11th March for the county Spelling Bee final. Well done to Gloria who represented our class in the school spelling bee final. It was an exciting final and we are so proud of Gloria for getting into the school final. Great job Gloria!
Confirmation Retreat and Talk
The sixth class girls visited Emmaus Retreat Centre in Swords recently to enjoy some reflective time with singing, prayers and discussion about Confirmation. They had a great day and are really looking forward to a lovely Confirmation Day on the 5th March. We also had a visit from Fergus Grimes and Fr. Joseph and they both talked to the girls about taking The Pledge as part of the Confirmation ceremony. Not long to go now! Mass on Saturday 29th February at 6pm will be the last preparation Mass for confirmation. There is also a practice for sponsors and students after this Mass. If a sponsor cannot be there a parent can be present instead and inform the sponsor of what is expected on the day of Confirmation.

The winning entry from our class is by Isabelle! Congratulations Isabelle on a wonderful piece of art and best of luck in the final competition!

Well done to Dania and Emma who both represented our school in the Credit Union Quiz last Friday 31st January.

We are so proud of the girls for their great achievement and applaud them for all of their hard work and effort!
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to you all and welcome back to school. This is going to be a busy few months ahead so we need to make sure we are all working hard to make our last few months in Réalt na Mara great. We need to keep our focus on our work as entrance exams are coming up shortly and we still have lots of new things to learn. Keep up with the learning homework in particular and it is very important to do it every night. This will help you to be organised for Secondary school and not let things go until the last minute! Keep smiling and remember to be respectful and responsible as we are the role models in school for the younger children. Keep up the great work!
