Debating in 6th Class

Mrs Brennan, Uncategorized No Comments »

Recently a team of five 6th class pupils participated in their very first debating experience against Diffreen NS. The motion was ‘Single sex schools are better than mixed schools’. Drumlease were given the difficult task of arguing for the motion. Both teams presented great arguments and the feedback was favourable. Congratulations to Ellie, Noah, Sean, Aaron and Conor. A new team from 6th class will be selected and given the opportunity to debate on a new topic in the coming weeks. We wish them well.

Dear Parents,
I have resigned from my post of principal of Drumlease NS, to take up a new position as principal of Scoil Mhuire gan Smal, Ballymote, Co.Sligo.
I have thoroughly  enjoyed my twelve years working in Drumlease National School and it is with a heavy heart that I write this. I have been fortunate to develop many friendships and retain many memories which I will value as long as I live.
I wish to thank all the teaching  staff and ancillary staff for their support during that time. The school is fortunate to have such talent and dedication. 
I also wish to thank thank the Board of Management members who I have worked with, for their help and support. I firmly believe that we have created a school and a school community of which everyone can be justifiably proud. 
Similarly,  I would like to express my gratitude to the parents and  Parents Association of the school for their efforts and input in making the school what it is today. 
Lastly, but most importantly, I want to thank all the pupils, past and present, who are the reason I looked forward to unlocking the door of the school each and every morning. 
You can be assured that I will offer whatever support and advice I can to the incoming principal and wish them all the best at they lead the school into a new era. 
Yours sincerely, 
David O’Farrell
