WELCOME TO RANG
School year 2019/2020
We would like to begin our school year by wishing our lovely friend Grace all the very best as she begins a new chapter in secondary school.
So here we are once again. We are all well rested after all our travels over the summer, this year we have visited with our families Spain, Italy. France, Portugal, London, Poland , Lazarotte, and Tralee .
We are delighted to welcome our lovely new friend Molly Ann.
We have plenty of plans for the months ahead. Lots of learning. Lots of exploring, lots of mystery tours, but most of all lots of friendship and fun.

Our Annual Gold Rush
Fun on the Air Track
We had a Fantastic time in the Yard when our Gymnastics teacher Dan brought an Air Track to school.
It was such a beautiful, sunny morning. We took the opportunity to go outside and explore our shadows. We stood very still and drew around our shadows with chalk. Then we tried to fit into each other’s shadows! It was so much fun.
We are hoping that our school will be awarded an Amber Flag for Mental Health Awareness. In order to do this we will have various events. Our first job is to make Amber bunting. Every Class will draw what makes them happy on the flags. First, they muct be given the orange card. This job seems to big, it will never be done! The WHOLE SCHOOL! Who could we call ?
Next, an Odd Sock Day .
Has anyone seen Hazel’s Smelly Socks?
To celebrate World Downs Syndrome day, staff and children were invited to wear purple to school and make a donation to Downs Syndrome Cork. AS usual everyone raided their wardrobe and their pockets for a very successful event.
Spring is Here.

A Mystery Tour.
On Tuesday 13th of March we headed off from school. We took bus 205 and went for a little walk when we left the Bus . We came upon a few shops and decided to go see if we could get a cup of Tea there and have a sit down . We found a place called Little Rebels , this sounds just right for us. We went inside and when the man opened the door for us we couldn’t believe our eyes. An indoor play area just for us.It was fab , two more buses and we arrived back in school.

We went on a Mystery Tour to town. We went on the local bus. Our first stop was Cork City Library where we read some lovely books. Our next stop was the English Market, (we thought there was something fishy about that place ). We went on a food hunt and found lots of interesting and unusual things to eat. We rambled along St. Patricks Street, popped into M&S to congratulate The Manager (looks familiar) and staff on their 30 years in Cork. All of this meeting and greating has given us an appetite! We went in search of somewhere to eat, as luck would have it Muireann and Daniel found a McDonalds for us. Tummies full, we headed back to school.
