Christmas fair is back again. This year with a whole new selection of things to do, which includes craft sale, bake sale, toy sale, kids nail and transfer tattoo stall, raffle, prizes, lucky dip and face painting. It will take place on the 4th of December 10am-2pm in the school hall all in aid of Rathregan national school.
Every month in the hall 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th go down to the hall and Mr Barrett would question us using a notepad filed with general knowledge questions. There are normally twenty normal questions and then six facts for each class. There are nine groups that consist of one or two of each class.
Every Tuesday at 03:00 a man called Karl Graham comes to the school to teach kids kickboxing and Kung fu. It is also for self defence, fitness and fun. It takes place in the hall and lasts one hour, from 03:00 to 04:00. It costs six euro per lesson.
Here is an opinion of a pupil who does it: “It is great fun. I would encourage most kids to learn it because it improves your self defence and there is a mix of lots of different exercises to keep you fit. I really enjoy it.”
Today we were visited by the ‘Andy Morgan Foundation’ who gives schools ‘Buddy Benches’. The way a ‘Buddy Benches’ work is so simple if a child is lonely out on break if that child is seen sitting on the bench another child will come over and play with them. The bench is blue and yellow and has the words ‘Buddy Bench’ on it.

Every year before Christmas, most people in the school do Kris Kindle. This is when everybody gets a name from their class and they have to make them something, or do something for them. Not everybody has to take part, but we think it is fun and everybody should join in. You could make them a cake or some cookies or you could make a card or do anything for them for five minutes. But you are not allowed to buy anything from the shop, (apart from ingredients!) You bring it in to school for your person a couple of days before your Christmas play.
