Annual School Sponsored Walk.

15th June 2023 we all took part in our annual sponsored walk.  Every child took part and all received a medal for their efforts.  Our wonderful Parents’ Association treated everyone to an ice-cream afterwards and a fantastic day was had by all.


This is our staff for 2023/2024 school year.

Welcome to the website of St. Patrick’s NS, Drumshanbo.
We have set up this website to provide a window into our school that you can look through to see what’s going on. You’ll be able to enjoy some of what is happening in our various classes. You will get to see the people who make up our school community – our pupils and staff. You should be able to find any information that you might need regarding the school, including all important policies and forms.
Our school motto is ‘Cairdeas agus Oideas’ – Friendship and Learning – and these are priorities for us in the school. We hope that our website gives you an insight into both.
Tá súil againn go mbainfidh tú taitneamh as – enjoy!
