6th Class Basketball All Stars

6th Class Girls Team

Congratulations to all the boys and girls from 6th class who competed in the Primary Schools Mini-Basketball at the National Basketball Arena. Both the boys and girls teams were exceptional and there was great team spirit. The boys team were very unlucky in their match against a very good St.Francis Xavier team. Despite a valiant effort and some great shots just missing they were defeated. The girls fought hard against Marist school and came out victorious to claim a first trophy for RETNS in basketball. Well done to all who participated. A special mention to Mandy and Patricia for all their hard work in training and coaching both teams. Also to all the 5th class and parent and teacher support during a great day out in the NBA. 

#40Days40Items

6th Class have spent the duration of Lent collecting basic, useful household items to donate to a homeless charity. Our aim was to collect 40 items and we managed to collect double that amount of items. We have contacted some local charities who may need our care package. Well done to all for their thoughtfulness and generosity.
