New School Year 2020-2021

Following a few extremely busy weeks here in Dunmore Community School, we are looking forward to welcoming our students, both our existing and our new first years, back after a prolonged absence. As explained in the recent letter emailed to you all, we have put in place lots of procedures and protocols to ensure as safe a reopening as possible.

We ask parents and students to please watch the following 2 videos before the return to school and to have a look at the following handouts.

Looking forward to welcoming our students back as per our reopening calendar.

Transition Year Review 2019-2020

Transition Year Review 2019-20

This linked article is a summary of some of the events that were organised by Ms. Scarry and the Transition Years. Its is a shame that due to an international health pandemic our year had to end so abruptly. This article was written to remind our students of all the amazing things they have achieved and experienced over the year. There were numerous other activities and trips organized and coordinated by teachers for this group and they have been documented on the school’s website already and can be found here:-http://www.dunmorecs.ie/index.php/category/ty/

A wide variety of titles, prizes, awards and successes were achieved by this year group that range from Junk Koture to Break the Seal in History, Enterprise Awards and football and sport titles.
