ActiveFlag 2017

 

Only 13% of Dublin schools have an Active Flag awarded to them. D&ET is privileged to not only have one, but to have it renewed. This week, we gathered in the yard, when Dublin Camogie star, Arlene, raised our new flag. 

This one is a deeper blue, so should take longer than the previous to fade.

6th Class led in their final dance routine, before graduating on Monday next.

Who will be there in the future to provide such dance moves?

Thanks to Padraig for coordinating the Active Flag Committee.

 

ROAD SAFETY SLOGANS (2nd Class Peadar)

Indicate if you are turning

Even if you are only learning

Green means Go

So now you know

Don’t ever drink and drive

If you want to stay alive

Be safe on the road

Or you’ll be like a flattened toad

 

Traffic stops at a red light

So you won’t become a grim sight

If you stay bright

You’ll cross with delight

 

If you cross the road at a bend

Your cuts and bruises may never mend

Don not cross at a bend

Or that may be for you the end
