Fun Run For Cambodia

Fun Run Information

DPETNS Fun Run for Cambodia will take place after school on Friday 20th May.    Registration will take place at 2:45pm with the runners setting off at 3:00pm.  The route will take the participants on a scenic 5km through the village to Newbridge House and Park and back.  

We hope that our whole school community will take part in some way on the day - those not taking part in the run can join us on the school premises to see the runners off and cheer them home again.  During Fun Runs in the past we have had great fun and a wonderful atmosphere amongst the supporters on the school grounds.

We will also be hosting a social evening for staff and parents the following evening, May 21st - watch this space for more information.

Changemaker School

Irish Times Article on Changemaker Schools

Our whole school community is delighted and proud that DPETNS is one of only five schools in Ireland to be receive a Changemaker School Award from Ashoka Ireland.   To find out more watch their video showing what makes a changemaker school and read the Irish Times article from 11th November. 

Changemaker Schools aspire to create a world where children become empathetic leaders, capable of working together creatively to solve problems and drive change in the world.  Ashoka works with these schools to support them alongside businesses, social entrepreneurs, universities, media and across other sectors.

In DPETNS we take pride in the work we do with the students to instill a sense of Global Citizenship: in fact our Mission Statement 'tagline' is "Children of Our School, Citizens of The World.

The community has engaged with our Cambodian Partnership.  One of our teachers, Colm, is currently working with PEPY in Cambodia and we are enjoying the regular updates from Colm.

Another innovative project has been the work we have done with the students on Positive Mental Health; we are one of the only primary schools in the country to address this important issue with our students.

Promoting Positive Mental Health

Promoting Positive Mental Health

PEPY and ETNS have been collaborating for over a year now. One of the many shared activities is the promotion of #positivementalhealth. The students in both organizations have proactively engaged with this topic and have learned mental health is everyone's concern. Together they have created this amazing short video: - you can also read more about this project on the Cambodian Partnership blog at www.cambodiaireland.com
