DCS Facelift

A huge “Thank You” to our Parents’ Council for all the effort they have put into fundraising this year, and to you- the students, parents and staff, who so generously supported these fundraising events – both the Table Quiz and the recent Fun Run.
As you can see, it has enabled us to give the old dark corridors of our school a fresh new look over the Easter – We think you will all agree it has brightened the place up!
A special thanks to Kamil Czubiak of KC Property Maintenance who worked long hours over the Easter to get the work completed when the school was closed.

CCAM Sea Change Exhibition & tour of the art college

1st year Visual Art Students has a great engagement day with the art college & gallery in GMIT (CCAM – Creative Centre for Arts & Media), which displayed their artwork in the form of postcards. John Langan the head of the art faculty spent time giving the students a very informative talk about the creative process and the different career opportunities in art and gave the students a tour of the different art studios within the college.

Public Speaking Competition

Our 2nd years had a great day out at the Western Region Drugs and Alcohol Task Force Public Speaking Competition in Galway.
Our team consisted of Katie Glynn, Ben Regan, Roy Kudla, Amy Canny and our speaker Molly Martyn.
The team worked very hard on their speech over the last few weeks, with their teacher Ms. Donnellan and some help from Ms. Lynch. Molly spoke very well on the day. Unfortunately we didn’t get through to the next round.

1st year Art students Seachange Exhibition

The Art Teachers Association of Ireland have arranged space in The Gallery of The Creative Centre for Art and Media in Galway, in order for our junior cycle students in the west of Ireland to experience and exhibit their creative work in a realĀ art gallery environment. I got my 1st year Visual Art Students to respond to a brief through research & investigation and create an A5 postcard with the theme – Seachange. The opening of the exhibition is on Tuesday 17th April at 6:30 and is open to the publicĀ until Sunday 22nd April. I will be taking the 1st year art class on Wednesday 18th to the exhibition to view their work and the work from other schools in the area. The students will also get a tour of the art college on the day by the head of the art faculty. Ms. Scott.

DCS Chess team heading to All Ireland Final

The very best of luck to our two Chess teams travelling to Dublin this weekend to take part in the U14 and U16 All Ireland Chess Finals.

This is our first year entering into a chess competition and it’s fantastic that DunmoreCS have 2 teams that qualified for the All Ireland Finals which will take place this Sunday, the 15th April, in Gonzaga College Dublin. A special thanks to the teams, trainers (our TY students) and Ms Brogan for all the time and effort that they have put into getting ready for the finals.

Connacht Juvenile Football Semi – Final

Dunmore narrowly missed out on a place in this years Connacht final, losing out to Garbally college 2-10 to 5-12. In what was a fantastic game, Dunmore showed great fight and were unlucky not to be ahead at the break, trailing 0-6 to 1-6. Goals win games, and three goals in the final minutes proved too much for Dunmore. This team had some fantastic displays over the course of the year and we are all looking forward to next year. Well done lads!
