Good News for Ratoath Junior National School:

The Minister for Education and Science has announced that the long awaited extension to the Junior School (six new classrooms, renovation of some rooms in the existing building, an enlarged GP room, office facilities etc) is now to proceed to tender and construction.                                We thank the Principal, the Board of Management, the teachers, the Parents Association, the design team and our local public representatives who have worked so hard to progress this project to this stage.

The annual anointing of the sick will take place at the 11.00am and 12.15pm Masses this weekend (30th April). If you know of any elderly, sick or infirm parishioners in your area, perhaps you could assist in bringing them to one of the Masses on Sunday.
