Welcome to our school website.

Happy New Year to all in our school community,

We welcome all our pupils and families back to school after the long Christmas break.  We look forward to a new and exciting year ahead.  We are starting off the new school year with 2 new year resolutions.  Firstly we are asking the pupils to be punctual and for families to make school attendance a priority this year. I recently attended a prize giving evening in St Paul’s HS.  It was immensely rewarding to see that so many past pupils of Dromintee PS had gone on to achieve the highest levels in both GCSE and ‘A’ Level subjects.  In a broader sense it was also astonishing to see how many pupils who got awards for full attendance were also subject award recipients, though this should not be a surprise to us.   We are attaching advice from the Department of Education on attendance also – ‘miss school, miss out’. 

Our second new year resolution is to introduce healthy eating at lunchtime.  We would like to draw your attention to lunchbox planning information which was issued by the Public Health Agency and issued to all pupils yesterday.  We want all children to reach their full potential, therefore, we are asking for the wider school family to work with us on these 2 resolutions.  We know that children learn best when their food intake is balanced.  It is not surprising to see 3 or 4 sweet treats in young children’s lunchboxes.  We are asking that no more than 1 sweet treat is included per day.  Incidentally the lunchbox 4 on the planning sheet suggests kiwi fruit.  Please be aware that we have kiwi allergies in Primaries 2 and 3.

I look forward to working with you all in 2018.  Please be assured of a warm welcome when you visit us.

Bliain nua faoi mhaise dhaoibh,

Wendy McKeown
