Student council members from each class were responsible for making a card to thank front line workers for all that they did. The children made cards to a variety of places, including Tallaght Hospital and Peamount Hospital. We were delighted to receive letters of thanks from both hospitals.
This year Sarah is the teacher co-ordinating our Student Council. The first news from our Student Council is that Rathfarnham Educate Together N.S. sent our school a wonderful gift of a beautiful Nature Book. Our Student Council showed it to all the classes in our school and they made a 'Thank You' card for Rathfarnham Educate Together N.S.
