Dan Traffic Safety Talk -  We have been working with the school on ways to improve traffic safety on Seafield Avenue. As a result, the school have organized for Dan to talk to the children about both traffic and pedestrian safety. Dan has asked us to pass on a request for parent support on stopping children going up the lane on bikes and scooters. This has caused a number of incidents over the years, and this can be avoided by ensuring children only walk in the lane way. 
Cool Planet Talk for Parents - Thursday 6th June 7.30pm. Hugo Thompson, a parent in the school, is a Cool Planet Champion - these are local people who want to help you make a difference in the fight against climate change - they are passionate, they are knowledgeable & most importantly they are approachable! Hugo has offered to run a free, interactive presentation, at school, on climate change, what it means for Ireland & what it means for you. We hope that you can come and join us for this.
Friendship Stop - Well done to all the winners of both the friendship stop sign design, and additional friendship posters around the school! This great initiative was spearheaded by Ms Johnston and funded from proceeds of recent PA fundraising. A fantastic addition to the school!

Dear Parents, 

Our annual School Sponsored Walk will take place on Thursday 13th June from 8:45am to 12pm (noon). All children will receive their Sponsorship Card shortly. Pupils will walk with their class supervised by their teacher supported by parents.  The route is outlined below. 

 

In advance of the walk we are looking to parents to assist. If you are free on the morning of 13th June and would like to help please let us know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

A number of people have enquired about Garda Vetting. The Vetting Act does not apply to unpaid volunteers (such as parents) who assist the school on an occasional basis provided such assistance does not involve the coaching, mentoring, counselling, teaching or training of children or vulnerable persons. A parent who helps on an occasional and unpaid basis is therefore not subject to vetting as long as the parent is not involved in the coaching, mentoring, counselling, teaching or training of pupils. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any specific questions regarding vetting. We will be in touch with volunteers nearer the date with details. If you have any other questions please email Gerard O’Rourke at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

The children will leave the school from 8.45am and walk the following route;

  • Left out Main Gate on to Seafield Avenue
  • Left onto Seafield Road
  • Right onto Clontarf Road
  • Left at Pedestrian Crossing onto Wooden Bride
  • Straight all the way to “Yellow Life Guard Hut” on walkway to Statute.
  • (Jnr and Snr Infants will do a shorter version and return from Dollymount Scout Den)

Parents please ensure;

  • Children should wear suitable footwear , runners are best .
  • Comfortable clothing
  • Small carry bag with shoulder strap if possible, to carry water & light snack
  • Light Rainproof type jacket.
  • Sun Factor pre-applied.

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.
