Walk To School Day 2023

On Wednesday the 4th of October it was National Walk To School day which was part of Green Schools Walk To School Week 2023. Lots of pupils from Dangan school had their high vis jackets on and were delighted to be meeting up on Wednesday morning to walk from Kilmore Village and Cox’s Cross or to “Park And Stride” from the church and community centre next to the school.

We were very lucky that the weather stayed dry and everyone really enjoyed the activity which links in really well with our new Green Schools theme “Global Citizenship Travel”. We’re hoping to organise another Walk To School Day soon!

Pitch Perfect For Dangan NS

Pictured are our Student Council launching our Dangan NS Pitch Perfect fundraiser for our school.

We are fundraising for an all weather playing pitch at the front of our school. We are blessed to have terrific school grounds in Dangan National School, but unfortunately, much of our playing surface is very wet for the majority of the school year. Therefore, both the children and the staff believe this venture, equipped with top-notch playground safety surfacing, would be of huge benefit to the school. In all seasons, it is vital to have accessible outdoor play areas for children now more than ever before.

Our aim is to raise €25,000 to develop this playing pitch. We plan to have this pitch completed in full colour with inviting games for young and old printed on the surface.

We are hoping that companies, parents, pupils past and present and the wider community will help by donating to our worthy cause. Our aim is to sell squares of our pitch plan for €50 with a draw for the winning squares taking place on December 22nd. All squares purchased will be entered into the draw with fantastic prizes – 1st Prize is a Stay in Centre Parcs Longford (value €800). Any donation great or small besides those for the purchase of squares for the draw would also be greatly appreciated by all involved in Dangan National School.

Please click here to donate or purchase squares at our iDonate page.

Thank you!

Our New Hallway Sensory Pathway

In the weeks before the end of the final term we were delighted to be able to have our new sensory pathway decals installed in the school hallways. These have added a wonderful splash of colour to the school’s interior and will help provide opportunities for pupils to take part in movement breaks at different points throughout the day. Thank you to Ms. Prior for her help in researching and planning the layout and design of the different pathway sections. To see some examples of the features of the pathway and how it will be used by pupils just click on the video below.
