6th Class


September has been a very busy month in Rang a Sé. Here is a snippet of some of the things we have been getting up to.

Confirmation Day:


On Saturday 25th September the children celebrated their Sacrament of Confirmation. It was a wonderful day and a big well done to all for their contributions on the day.

Election Day:



Congratulations to our newly elected committee members:

Katie O’Sullivan and Harry O’Sullivan – Active Schools Committee

Muireann Barry and Scott Wickham - European Development Team

Amillia Shepard and Abbey Nacey – Green School Committee

Ellie Jefferson and Jessica Doyle – Student Council

A big well done to every child for presenting their manifesto. A huge effort was made by all and I have no doubt many faces from Rang a Sé will be seen on election posters around Wexford in years to come!!!

Friendship Week:

Last week we celebrated Friendship Week. We explored ways to be a good friend. We enjoyed playing lots of friendship and teamwork games outside and during circle time, like ‘Mime a Lie’, ‘Countdown’ and ‘Red Light, Green Light’. We made posters and slogans to celebrate Friendship Week. Our favourite part of Friendship Week, however, was spending time with our buddies outside. We read our buddies stories, played games and made them beautiful friendship bracelets. Our buddies made us fantastic ‘Thank You’ cards. We love them!

Well done to Eve Hutchinson for winning the Art Competition and winning a 5 euro voucher for Wallace's 😊



Up Wexford!


Take a look at the banner we made in support of the Wexford Ladies Football and Camogie teams in their respective All-Ireland Finals. You go girls!




For P.E. in September, we have been putting the Fundamental Movement Skill of 'dodging' to the test during games such as dodgeball, basketball, football, line ball, rounders, endzone and bench ball. We enjoyed practising our ball skills and playing mini-games. For Science we learned about wind energy and made our own wind turbines. It was a breeze!!
