Special thanks to Anne Tierney, President of The Old Tuam Society who joined us in DCS last week to give a presentation to our students who are involved in Breaking the Seal. The Old Tuam Society are participating with the Breaking the SEAL Programme (BTS), an NUIG initiative programme. The programme connects second-level students to the archival material, primary sources, and collections of the Hardiman Library at NUI Galway and the students own locality. Anne is mentoring some of the students, as they complete their mandatory research, and will provide access to archival material from the society. The winning article will be published in a forthcoming issue of the JOTS. For further information please see http://btsnuig.weebly.com/about.html
Our 2020 Prospectus is now available to view below and on our General Info Menu. I look forward to calling into the local National Schools and meeting the 6th class students over the coming weeks with information packs and enrolment forms.
Reminder: Our open night for incoming 1st years is taking place Thursday, 27th Feb @ 6:45 pm. We look forward to meeting you and showing you around our school.
Happy New Year and welcome to a new term in DCS. School resumes tomorrow the 6th Jan as per our calendar. After school study will also resume tomorrow. Only students who have returned a signed slip will have received a text about payment. If you have forgotten or lost the letter you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply and we will send you the text for payment. All payments for study must be done online as we can no longer accept cash or cheques.
Well done to Ms Walsh and our choir who performed at the annual parish Christmas Carol service on Sunday, the 15th December, in Dunmore Parish Church. https://www.facebook.com/DunmoreCS/videos/1861230250850346/
On Thursday 12th December, Claire from Athlone Institute of Technology gave an informative talk to our Leaving Certs. AIT was recently named The Sunday Times Institute of Technology 2020. See www.ait.ie for further details.
In line with current best practice, Dunmore Community School is going Cashless. Going forward, payments to the school will be issued via text and email and payment can be made online and a receipt issued instantly.
Please note, payments may be made via the text sent to you, or via the email link sent out. We have also installed a debit card payment machine in the office for anyone having difficulty with the online method. However, we have no doubt you will find the method we have chosen is the simple, safe and extremely user-friendly.
We intend to roll this feature out with our current 3rd and 6th years for the upcoming Mock Fees later this week/early next week.
Best of luck to our former students Barbara Hannon, Lucy Hannon , Sarah Conneally & Olivia Divilly who are members of the Galway Senior Ladies Football team. We wish them & their fellow team mates & management all the best in the All Ireland Final on Sunday when they compete against Dublin. All four ladies were great sports stars in our school & were part of very successful football teams here in DCS.
