Plenty of stars shone across both evenings as they entertained the audiences with songs and dancing from WWII. A big thank you to all of our parents, grandparents and friends who supported the P4s not just on the nights, but in all the preparation as well. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Rathmore Over the next few weeks at Rathmore, we have a number of events taking place in the run up to Christmas. This is always a busy time of year, and one that is full of energy and fun. We would love it if you could join us and celebrate the Christmas story. Our Nursery and P1 pupils will be performing four Nativity plays and the senior school will host their annual Carol Service at West Church. Please note that due to the large demand for the P1 Nativity you need to reserve your tickets in advance. The PTA will also be hosting their Christmas Fair next Friday (4pm-6pm) and having a non-uniform day and Christmas discos (for P4-P7) on Thursday 21 December (Donation of £1.50). Nursery and P1 Enrolment This week we have been welcoming prospective parents for next year’s enrolment. On Tuesday night we invited parents to visit our Nursery and on Wednesday we opened our doors to the whole school for our prospective P1 parents. We want to say a huge thank you to all our members of the RRS Council and School Council who helped take tours, our Senior Choir, our String Ensemble and all our pupils in classrooms and playgrounds - you were fantastic! Reminder: the closing date for applications is midday on Wednesday 10th January 2018. Raffy’s Thought for the Month: ‘Be empathetic, think of others’ Realise that the feelings of others are important.
