What: Rathcoole/Saggart St. Patrick’s Day Parade
When: Friday March 17, 2017
Where: Community Centre, Rathcoole
Who: All children and their families
We are going to go ahead with the parade! We’ve had a lot of people show interest in attending on the day and as we’ve had so much fun in previous years, we might as well just go for it!
Details of the Parade
The Parade runs from the beginning of Rathcoole, but we are going to meet the parade at Rathcoole Community Centre and walk through with the parade to Saggart GAA club.
The theme of this year’s parade is famous movies, so we are asking parents to dress their kids in anything animal like (animal print hats, scarves, jumpers) to represent the movie “Sing” or for kids to wear any bright T-Shirts/Jackets etc. We want the children to stand out and look like a group! We are also asking parents to send their children in with any small percussion instruments you might have at home (tambourines, small drums etc). We are hoping to make lots of noise and look colourful to celebrate our school.
Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian throughout the parade. There will be people helping out on the day, but we can’t be responsible for your child, someone must accompany them.
It’s quite a walk up to Saggart and the parade won’t be over until 3.30pm where it ends in Saggart GAA Club, so make sure you bring water/snacks for your child.
We will be all walking together and plan to be singing the Educate Together Song as we walk though, so have a practice with your children and get ready to chant!
Thanks for your support with this event.

Educate Together Song:
Everywhere we go-o
Pe-ople want to know-o
Who we a-are
And where we come from
So we tell them
We're from Educate Together Citywest
Mighty, mighty Citywest
And if they can't hear us
We sing a little louder
