Welcome to St Peter's National School in Dromiskin, Co. Louth in Ireland

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have come to the end of a very busy school year. My first six months as Principal of St Peter’s N.S. have been wonderful and I would like to thank every pupil, teacher, parent and friend of Dromiskin for their kindness and support in helping me with my transition.  I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all and I look forward to many years as leader of this wonderful school community.  

I would like to take this opportunity to say goodbye to our Sixth Class pupils and wish them happiness and fulfilment as they continue on their educational path. They have enriched St Peter’s N.S. by continually sharing their talents, skills and good humour.  We hope they have enjoyed their time with us and bring their memories of St. Peter’s with them throughout their lives.

A special word of thanks to the Parents’ Council in supporting the school’s programme, especially with Religious Ceremonies, School Sports’ Day and fundraising for worthy causes throughout the year. We have had interesting talks for parents this term, one arranged by Sandra of The Genesis Programme and an informative talk for Open Day parents on Language and Literacy by Kate O’ Hanlon, Educational Consultant. An Internet Safety Seminar has been booked for the 24th of September and we hope this will appeal to all parents. We would encourage parents to monitor their children’s online access during the summer months. We have lots of other wonderful workshops and activities lined up for the next academic year so please check the website calendar for updates throughout the year.

We look forward to raising our Health Promotion flag on the 27th June. All welcome. We are also excited about starting the second year of our Green School Travel Flag and appreciate your continued support with the walk to school events. We appreciate the continued support of An Taisce, especially the new bicycle sheds and we have big plans for spending our €1,000 prize….plans will be revealed soon!

We thank you for your patience as we set up e-payments for book lists and we hope this will be an efficient option for all going forward to finance school bills, outings, extra-curricular activities etc.

We wish everyone good health, happiness and hopefully lots of fun in the summer sunshine.


Mise le meas,

Aoibheann Lynch
