We were inspected for our Active flag on 25th March. We have worked hard towards this. Our Active Flag committee consisting of six pupils form 1st to 6th class reported on our activities. These were Callam Desmond, Alex Fleming, Amber Desigar, Noah Ovington, Eric Schutte and Simone Kenny.

Aoife Munn from Windy Ridge garden centre came in and planted with 1st, 5th and 6thClasses. Some planted vegetables in our raised beds whilst they all planted sweet pea plants to take home with them. They also had a talk on water conservation.

Boys Hockey Team win the Under 12 “B” League Cup

Congratulations to the Boys’ Hockey Team on winning the Cup on Thursday 26th March. They beat Dalkey School Project, 2-0, on the astro pitch in Wesley College. It was an exciting, end to end match, with every one of the boys playing his part. Rathmichael rocked DSP by scoring early in each half and while pressing for a third goal, defended doggedly at the other end. The team were worthy winners of this League Cup having won all their divisional games and their semi-final, to progress to the final.

The team had strong support from parents and school friends on the day and there was wild excitement at the final whistle.

Many thanks to their coach throughout the year, Niall Denham, who unfortunately could not be at the finals due to a prior hockey engagement. The team were coached on the day by Peter “Cookie” Caruth and Lee Cole, so many thanks to them for stepping in and doing a great job.

Thanks also to our Games Co-ordinator, June Lawless, for her organisation through out the year.

Last but not least, many thanks to the team members: Josh Bradshaw, Jack Cullen, Callum Desmond, Kian Gosling, Ben Hickmott, Sam Hickmott, Saul Light, Tim Norwood, Fionn O’Loan, Eliot Perry, Conor Round, Seán Schutte and Adam Walsh. The majority of the team are in 6th Class and will be moving on to secondary school in September – keep up the hockey and we hope to read great things of you in the future!
