Transition Year

Transition Year in Scoil Ruáin has begun in earnest for the academic year 2017/18. On September 4th the 32 students, including 4 international students, travelled to Coláiste Acla for 2 night’s activities all as Gaeilge. The students stayed with a Bean an Ti who looked after their needs for the 3 days. They participated in Cliff Diving, Bog Snorkelling, Cliff Hiking and Surfing on Keel Beach. Each night after a nutritious meal they had a ceili in the hall where they fine-tuned their Rinci Gaelacha. As with previous years the care and professionalism of the staff and management at the Coláiste was exemplary. Great bonds have been formed already and the students are ready for the year ahead.

This year Scoil Ruáin will produce Grease – a school musical for all to enjoy. Auditions have taken place and the cast have been identified. Many hours of rehearsals are ahead of the group before they perform for the paying public on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th November in the school. It is full steam ahead for everyone until then.
