Well done to Mr. O’Donoghue and the team.

Senior Chess​​winner: Sam Hannigan​​ runner-up: Lorcan MacMahon
Junior Chess​​winner: Ryan Donohue​​ runner-up: Daniel O’Brien
Short Chess​​winner : Dylan Kettle ​​runner-up: Josh Scully
Well done to all 119 contestants who took part.

The school website is rolestown.ie and is regularly uploaded with school news and events.

There are some Annual Voluntary Contributions still outstanding. We need every cent to keep the school ticking over and to make it a comfortable and exciting place in which to educate your child. Our facilities are the best, but the running costs are correspondingly high. If you have forgotten to pay your contribution we would be delighted to get it any time soon.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Kelleher ​​​​ PRINCIPAL

Omós do Andrew Kettle

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family and friends of Andrew Kettle at this difficult time. From all the staff, pupils and parents of the school.

Tá do threabhadh déanta sa tsaol seo agus d’fhág tú do ghort fé bhláth. Glac do shuaimhneas! Téigh ar thriail ar an bhfíorainne i mease na bánta. Bí ag faire orainn agus roinn do fheasa go fial idir chlann agus cháirde.

Beir bua agus beannacht.

You have ploughed the fields and left them in full bloom. Accept your peace! Continue on your journey in search of truth in the heavenly pastures. Cast your eye in our direction and enlighten us with your wisdom.

Rest in Peaceimage

School Closure- Friday 19th December

Dear Parent,

You are probably aware that Andy Kettle has sadly passed away. Requiem Mass will take place at 11am on Friday morning 19th of December in Rolestown church. It is likely that there will be a huge crowd present, with parking and traffic-related issues.

The Board of Management has decided that in the interest of the safety of our pupils and their parents, the school will remain closed to pupils on Friday.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Kelleher (principal)
