School Closures: Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd March

Given the disruption to transport and the safety risks arising, most particularly in relation to the ability to get home safely before blizzard like conditions hit Munster and Leinster, Drom NS will be closed tomorrow and Friday as instructed by the Department of Education and Skills. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. The school will re-open on Monday, 5th March 2018 at 9.20am. 

Text-A-Parent Difficulties

Parents / Guardians are advised that there has been some difficulty with the Text-A-Parent App which has resulted in some parents / guardians not receiving notice of the school closure or receiving notice some time after the notice was sent. We would ask any parent / guardian who receives notice of a school closure to contact their friends / neighbours to ensure all are kept informed. The school will endeavour to keep parents / guardians informed of any closures through texts, emails and notices on the school website and through Tipp FM. We apologise for the incovenience and hope you can understand that any issue with the Text-A-Parent system and with the internet is outside of the control of the school. 

SCHOOL CLOSED: 28th February 2018

Drom NS will close today due to weather conditions. We have been advised that the school bus will also not run today. We apologise for the incovenience. An earlier text may not have reached all so we would appreciate if you could inform friends and neighbours of the closure.

World Book Day: 1st March 2018

A Chairde, we are delighted to be celebrating World Book Day in Drom NS on Thursday 1st March 2018. Over the last 22 years, World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland’s biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own. This may sound like a very simple idea, but unfortunately, many children do not have access to books in their homes.

For World Book Day, the Department of Education and Skills has provided a token for €1.50 to all students in Ireland to purchase one of the following 10 books or to receive a discount of €1.50 on the purchase of a book. See tokens for terms and conditions.

Along with those titles there is an additional book available in Ireland only. Published by O’Brien Press, Rugby Roar by Gerard Siggins will be available from 20th February 2018.

Artist in the Primary School Scheme: Exhibition



On Tuesday, 30th January 2018, the children of 4th, 5th and 6th Class will represent the school at the launch of the Artist in the Primary School Scheme Exhibition in Tipperary County Council Civic Offices in Nenagh. An exhibition of the work that the students engaged in as part of this project will be on display in this office from 30th January 2018 – 13th February 2018. We encourage you to take some time to visit this exhibition to view our project and the work of other students throughout Tipperary.


Such projects would not be possible without the support of the Tipperary County Council Arts Office and we would like to acknowledge them and express our gratitude to them for allowing us the opportunity to work with Ms. Avril Kinane.


In the coming weeks, we hope to produce a CD of our music and hope you will join us before Easter at a concert to launch this CD.
