What's happening in the Royal School

Carol Singing

Well done to all our Carollers, and their teachers Ms. McQuaid, Ms. Tackney and Ms. Gray who braved the cold raising funds for Concern. A fast was also held earlier in the year for concern and a talk was given to TY pupils. The talk was given by Joanne Arnold who is the Schools and Youth Fundraising Officer for Concern Ireland. Joanne is a past pupil of the school and we were delighted to welcome her back.

Business Minds at RSC

RSC Mini Companies were busy showcasing and selling their products over the weekend. They attended the BOI Enterprise Town event in Cavan on Friday night and then spent all day on Saturday at the Christmas Craft fair in the Back Yard in Moynehall. They really enjoyed these events as they got to meet their target market, showcase their products and practice their selling/communication skills. Many thanks to all the customers and well wishers they met over the two days. Click the photo for larger images!
