The whole school gathered at assembly today to start us on a year of celebrating DSP40. The actual birthday is 1st September 2018 – tomorrow. We began assembly with a minute of mindful meditation. We watched a slideshow on the history of the school highlighting the challenges the start-up group faced back in the ’70s.

We welcomed Pat and Micheal Johnston to the assembly as representatives of founder members of DSP. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes sang songs. We looked at the beautiful quilt created in 2000 to celebrate the millennium at DSP.

We are planning a variety of ways of marking 40 years at DSP during the coming school year. The PTA are organising a Family Quiz night on Friday 21st September. Save the date!

Finally we sang Happy Birthday to DSP and our two youngest Junior Infants children blew out the candle. Here’s to a great year ahead celebrating our inclusive and innovative approaches to education!
