Welcome to Rathfarnham Educate Together National School.
Rathfarnham Educate Together National School (RETNS) is an Educate Together National School located on Loreto Avenue, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14. Our school is equality-based, co-educational, child centred, and democratically run. In our school we aim to teach to the highest standards of education through an ethos that guarantees every child equality of esteem, regardless of their social, cultural or religious background.
This week is active school week in RETNS. As we are looking to achieve our Active Schools flag, we need to make a huge effort with it this year. Some ideas / activities that will be taking place next week:
- All staff / pupils are encouraged to wear tracksuits for the week
- Physical activity homework replaces normal homework
- Reviving the Music in the Yard / Dance area
- DEAD (Drop Everything and Dance) – GoNoodle can be used for this! OR Shake up, Wake up! (9.10 get the children to do the Macarena, Saturday Night etc in classrooms or join up with the class next door!)
- DEAR (Drop Everything and Run) – 10 @ 10 could be used for this!
- Encourage staff and pupils to take part in COW and WOW days on Wednesday and Walking Bus on Friday.
