Handing over of the key.

Mr Gay McManus presenting the key of the Principal’s Office to the new Principal, Mr Declan Quinn.

Best wishes to Gay McManus who retires from his role as Principal of Dunmore Community School. Gay, originally from Milltown, started his teaching career here in 1982 as a Business Studies teacher before moving to Portarlington. He returned to Dunmore CS as Principal from 2007 – 2017.

All here at Dunmore Community School would like to take this opportunity to wish him a long, healthy and happy retirement. 

Transition from Primary to Post Primary

Looking forward to welcoming all our 1st Years next Tuesday at 9:00am.

To assist them in the transition to Post Primary we have developed an excellent induction programme for them, called “Belonging Plus”. It is designed to help our 1st years learn all they need to know about life in our school. Whether they are feeling nervous, excited or just plain confused, this programme will help them make the transition.
