Dear Parents, 

New Drumcondra Primary Standardised Tests were launched this year. As a result of this, you may see differences in results when compared to previous years. Please remember that all test scores are only estimates of a child’s true achievement level, based on a specific set of test questions administered on a particular day. This means that a child’s ‘true score’ on any test may be a little higher or a little lower than the reported score. The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment [NCCA] has developed online resources on interpreting STen scores (available here), which you may find helpful. For further information on the new tests, please click here.

Dear Parents, 

Booklist Costs for September 2019 are available here. In a change from recent years, books will be available for collection on Wednesday 26th June from 9:30am to 12:30pm. If you are not available to collect the books on the 26th June, we will give them to your child to take home on that day. Payment can be made anytime between now and the 26th June using the aladdin app or using your ePayment access link. Click here if you have misplaced or deleted the link.

In an effort to reduce plastic waste, the school will not cover any single use workbooks. We will continue to cover books on loan. The book covering fee has been reduced from €4.50 to €1.50 to reflect this change. We are also switching to environmentally friendly homework wallets and significantly reducing the amount of plastic copybook covers we will use. 

FINALLY REMEMBER: If your child is currently in Junior Infants you will be paying for the Senior Infant Booklist and so on.
