Thanks to the parents who are teaching road safety to children in the mornings. The increased bicycle traffic outside our gates is an opportunity for the DSP community spirit to spring into action. Thanks to PTA for messaging parents to foster road safety in children. Be aware this will need to be done every morning for at least two or three weeks for children to do it automatically: Remember – Stop. Look right … and left before you cross the road!

We want to keep everyone safe in school also. If your child is unwell, keep them home. Thanks to the families who have done this already and for letting the office know by email. Reminder, if your child was sent home from school, they should not return for 48 hours. We care about the wellbeing of each and every child in our school.

We are looking forward to meeting Junior Infant parents/guardians via zoom next Tuesday 14th September 2021 at 7:30pm. Our first Board of Management meeting will be on Monday 13th September 2021 to plan for the year ahead. Sincere thanks to the Treasurer and Chairperson for attending multiple meetings since term started. As always, lots of behind the scenes work is necessary for making decisions that sustain our inclusive, high achieving, Changemaker school. We look forward to working together on many community projects with as many families involved as possible. Here’s to a good school year ahead!
