A meeting of DSPNS Board of Management (BOM) was held on Monday 7th September 2020 (via Zoom).

Items on the agenda included the Treasurer’s Report, Principal’s Report, Communications Report, Maintenance report, Voluntary Contributions report, and Buildings report.  Specific items included:

  1. Board acknowledges the work of staff in reopening the school and giving children a calm start to the school year. The Board thanks the school community for not driving up to school gates and facilitating safe walking/cycling for children.
  2. Thanks to the Voluntary Contributions given by parents/guardians last year, the entire downstairs has a fresh new look from a summer painting job.
  3. The Code of Behaviour is under review in light of adjustments to school routines due to Covid 19.
