Studyclix have some excellent articles on their blog, that should be of help to our JC and LC students, and in fact any of our students. They are well worth a read.
We look forward to welcoming the Graduation Class of 2019 and their families to Graduation Ceremony in the Sports Hall @ 5pm this Thursday. Please ensure your child is at the school by 4:50 as we are taking the class photo before the ceremony begins.
Please be seated in your family groups in the Hall before 5pm and save a seat for your son/daughter. The format for the evening is mass, awards and refreshments immediately afterwards.
Dunmore Community School would like to congratulate Brendan Carr, Shane McGrath and Conor Mitchell on making the Galway minor Panel and also to Darragh Heneghan who made the Roscommon Minor Panel.
The teams are playing against each other this evening at 7:30 in Hyde Park.
Dunmore Community School would also like to congratulate past students Darren O’ Malley, Andrew Glennon and Cathal Heneghan who performed recently for the Roscommon Senior football team against Leitrim in the Connacht Championship. DCS wishes them the very best of luck and a long summer of football!
Although the school will be closing for the summer break shortly, the school building will hopefully be busier than ever during the break as we are delighted to have finally reached the etender stage of our upcoming Deep Energy Retrofit. It is now available on https://www.etenders.gov.ie
All going well, and subject to budgets and the tendering process, during the summer we are going to see the 67 building, auditorium and canteen getting new windows & external doors, new piping & radiators and 200mm of external cladding insulating this building. The whole school will also be getting an energy efficient cascade Gas heating system installed to replace our aging inefficient oil fired heating system. The 2009 building will also have thermostatic valves incorporated into the existing system to allow for individual zoning of classrooms and common areas. We are also adding 2 draught lobbies to control heat loss from the building from the two main entrances to the building.
To further enhance our energy rating, we are also installing LED external lighting for the whole school grounds, which will complement the LED lighting we already have internally throughout the school. Hopefully, all of this work, plus the 19 Photovoltaic Panels will place our aging school building in an energy class comparable to many new builds.
We will be able to monitor and control our energy usage by a state of the art computerised Building Management System (BMS) and a simple traffic light system will show students and staff if our average energy usage is acceptable by showing green, amber or red.
Exciting green times ahead for DCS!
