Partnering Children on their Developmental Journey

Back to School 2020 


As the country starts to open up again, our thoughts in Ratheniska National School are turned towards opening of school for Term 1 . All staff in Ratheniska have been busy preparing for a return to school . The school has been deep cleaned and preparations have been made to make the school a safe space for all . We are hoping to be given the go ahead to reopen on Thursday August 27th . You will receive information detailing how the return to school will happen in August . This information will be based on the best advice made available to us from the DES . Information  previously posted for parents of Junior Infants can be accessed here.

In the meantime enjoy the summer break as best you can and if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact the school office at

To assist Junior Infants 2020 with joining us at Ratheniska NS we have prepared a short film  which you can access by clicking on the picture below. Please encourage your child to become familiar with the film before the return to school .
