Last week the 2B CSPE class had a Climate Action Workshop with a representative from the SEAI. Following on from the SEAI’s and the Dept Of Educations Deep Energy Retrofit Pilot grant, where Dunmore CS received huge funding last summer to make our school more energy-efficient, our 2B class decided to enter the One Good Idea competition.
One of our boys’ teams “The Binjas” had great success and they qualified for the Regional Finals and in preparation for this, they must create a 1 min film and 3 min Presentation Pitch that will be played in the Omniplex cinema Limerick on 25th February. The class explored impacts of recycling, experiments with CO2 Gas and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Best of luck to our Binjas who are fighting for climate action and keeping a keen eye on all to see if you are using the right bins…..Watch out!

An orange weather warning has been issued for Galway and the West of Ireland because of storm Brendan. At present we intend to open today, but this may change depending on weather updates or if we get a Red Warning. We will update parents/guardians and staff by text if the decision to close is made.
If the school is open today, the final decision as to if students should travel rests entirely with parents/guardians.
Best of luck to our u16 Boys Basketball team & their coach Ms Grehan who compete in the All Ireland play-offs on Sun in Dunmore Community School.

Winners go forward to the next stage of the competition in the Basketball Arena Tallaght.
