Following on from the survey our Students Council have completed with the student body, you have overwhelmingly voted in favour of having the canteen supply school dinners at lunchtime. Our canteen company #FoodforSchool is delighted to start providing dinners on Monday the 12th of November. The school will subsidise it for the 1st week or 2, so dinners will be available for €2 and then return to the full price of €4.
This will be for a trial period to gauge the student and parent interest in ordering dinners. Further information when you return to school next week.
Our 3rd Year Parent-Student-Teacher Meeting takes place next Tuesday, the 6th of November starting at 4:15. Please note students are also required to accompany their parents/guardians to this meeting.
Well done to our u16 boys who had a great win against Spideal this week. They travel to Ennistymon after the midterm.
Congrats to Fionn Waters (Transition Year) who represented Dunmore CS in the Connacht Schools Swimming Championships in Tuam. Fionn added another Connacht title to the one he won last year in the Senior IM. Well done to Emma Kelly (Transition Year) who also represented DCS in the Senior Girls Competition.
On a wet Thursday the boys travelled to Castlebar for their second match of the year. Spurred on by their unfortunate loss in their tight first match and with healthier numbers the team were determined to come out of this meet on top and they did not disappoint.
Taking a few minutes at the start to settle into the game our lads took ownership of the game. Considering the slippery playing conditions Dunmore left nothing to chance ensuring passes, support play and scoring was on point while taking the advantage of winning the majority of both our own kickouts as well as the opponents. This resulted in a healthy lead by half time at 1:12 to 0:04.
Credit to Davitt College for battling on and they did return to the field in the second half with more bite. However it was clear Dunmore was the stronger team on the day and continued to add the scoring tally leaving us in a comfortable position to allow all players a run in the game. A great display by Dunmore lead to the final score being 3:21 to 2:10 to Dunmore. Next game will determine our position in the group and will be against Balla after midterm. Training will be after school the Monday we come back from midterm from 4-5.30.
Our annual Mass or Remembrance of deceased Past Students and Staff from Incarnate Word College, Dunmore Vocational School and Dunmore Community School will take place in the school Auditorium on Tuesday, the 27th November 2018 at 7:30pm.
If you know of anyone what should be included in the book of remembrance, since last year, please inform the families to contact us.
