St. Peter’s National School
Welcome to St Peter's National School in Dromiskin, Co. Louth in Ireland
We hope you had an enjoyable Hallowe'en break and that children are ready for a busy lead-up to the end of a very eventful year in Dromiskin. On behalf of the school community I would like to thank our current Board of Management for their commitment and dedication in managing the school through two beautiful building extensions and promoting a positive teaching and learning environment over the last four years. We are currently in the process of electing nominees to the new board for 2019-23 and we thank all staff, parents and community friends for their support. The new BOM will be announced in the next fortnight.
Please check the latest newsletter for this term which highlights the important dates to remember from now until February 2020. Children are already preparing for the festive season, creating Christmas Cards and preparing for the Christmas Carol Service on Wednesday 4th December. Thank you to the Parents' Council for arranging Tea/Coffee/Mulled Wine Reception in the School Hall afterwards. The Christmas raffle has also been organised by the Parents' Council and it will take place on the same evening. On behalf of the children and staff at the school I would like to acknowledge the hard work and enthusiasm of the Parents' Council. The Fruit/Veg days are also prepared by these committed members and children really enjoy these treats. Míle buíochas.
Marathon Madness was a great success, raising over 4,000 euro and Mr McComish has ordered table baskets for senior classes which should keep desktops nice and tidy. The money raised will also be used for enhancing our multi-sensory room. I would like to acknowledge Ardee Credit Union for sponsoring new basketball jerseys.
St Peter's NS would like to congratulate Dromiskin Tidy Towns on a very successful Fashion Show at Bellingham Castle recently. We hope there will be a good turnout for Clothes Collection and Cake Sale at the school on Saturday 15th November and we look forward to the Linda Martin Concert on Thursday 5th December in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Tickets are available at the school.
St Peter's NS also congratulates Joes GFC on a highly-entertaining Lipsync Show at Fairways Hotel and we hope to obtain DVDs of the show for Christmas stocking fillers!! Well done on a wonderful event for the entire Darver/Dromiskin community.
