In Rusheen National School we provide a full curriculum: English, Irish, Maths, History,
Geography, Science, Music, Art, P.E., Drama, S.P.H.E. and Religion.

One of our favourite activities is Gaelic Football. We have been very successful in Sciath na Scol over the years winning many finals. This year we lost the Sciath na Scol final in C.I.T. and the West Muskerry Blitz final held in Kilnamartyra.

Quizzes are one of our specialities. Recently we have won various quizes such as The Macroom Library Quiz, The Credit Union Quiz and The Muskerry Scór Quiz. In 1999, Rusheen N.S. won the All-Ireland Under 11 Credit Union Quiz Final in Dublin. Ray Darcy came to the school in honour of the occasion. Below is a photo of a plaque we won in Dublin.

Every year Rusheen N.S. head off to Páirc Ui Chaoimh for the Cork Primary School Sports. We take part in sprints and relays. We usually win lots of trophies. Below is a cup we won for a relay recently. We also compete in the West Muskerry Cross Country held in the Town Park during October each year.

Last year we had a huge number, 17, for Holy Communion but this coming year it will be a very small number with Sarah Hinchion, Aoife Shannon and Liam O’Driscoll receiving the Sacrament.

Confirmation will be held in St. John The Baptist Church, Ballinagree.

In 2017 pupils from the Junior and Senior classes went to The Glen Resource Centre on their School Tour.
