Once again this year, with the support of the Parents Association we teamed up with the local charity "Helping Hand" to assist those who are homeless in Waterford. This was simply a collection each week by different classes of basic living essentials. These items were then distributed by the charity at a later stage. The response was amazing so many thanks to everyone for supporting this very worthy cause. Pictured below is just a sample of some of the items collected.
The whole school gathered in the hall today to wish Mr Fitzgerald long life, health, and happiness as he retires from teaching after a long and successful career in St Declans. His contribution to the school over the years has been immense and he will certainly be missed by all his colleagues and friends. The entire DLS community wish him the very best for the future.
Congratulations and thanks to the Parents Association who organised a very succcessful Book Fair in the school during the 3rd week of November. Many thanks also to all those parents who visited the Book Fair and supported this very worthwhile initiative. Pictured below are the prize winners from a small competition held in conjunction with the Book Fair. Well done lads.
Once again this year there was lots of fun and games in the hall as the whole school gather together with their fingers crossed hoping that they would be the winner of the top prize. there could only be one winner so congratulations to Noah in our Preschool who went home very happy with his new bike!
Today the Mayor of the Metropolitan Area of Waterford, Cllr. Joe Kelly visited the school to present Attendance Certificates to the 40 boys who did not miss any day in school last year.
