School Safe Traffic Plan
Please check bags for Safe Traffic Plan. Remember the rap 3rd and 4th performed on the last Friday coffee morning before the Easter break? We want to keep our school gates safe. Only staff cars should park near gates.
For the sake of the safety of every child, please read the Traffic Plan, sign and return the agreement – and do not drive past or park near school gates!

Sponsored Run – May 5th during school hours
“ You have brains in your head
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself in
any direction you choose”.
(Oh, the places you’ll go!)
– Dr. Seuss
We are asking all students of DSP to steer themselves towards a massive fund-raising effort and to put their feet into their sporty shoes for our Annual Sponsored Event. This year it’s a SPONSORED RUN and it takes place on May 5th, 2017 (Our Super Senior Infants will do their run on May 4th due to their Forest School timetable) and all students will get to see Cuala’s Winning Team Captain in DSP on Friday, May 5th when he will join us at our school assembly for the presentation of class certificates.
This is going to be a really fun event and we encourage everyone to get up, get active, get involved. All students will receive sponsorship packs on Monday April 24th which gives everyone 10 days (including one full weekend!) to get out and get as much sponsorship as they can. Money raised will help fund the purchase of playground and computer equipment for the school so please…….ask neighbours, grandparents, relatives and friends to dig as deep as they possibly can and let’s make this year, the year of record results!
All sponsorship cards will enter a raffle so everyone is in with a chance to win a prize! PLUS, the class that collects the most sponsorship will be awarded a special surprise so let’s get as many people involved as possible and raise as much as we can and have a lot of fun together doing it!
Sponsorship Packs went in school bags on Monday, April 24th ……please make sure you got yours and let’s get ready to RUN!
Please note: No spiked or studded footwear. Trainers or hockey boots only
