Upgrade to Entrance of the School

While the works are progressing on the inside, we decided to give the school entrance a little tidy up by felling the tree and removing the old canopy before the new doors and windows are fitted in the next few weeks.

Thanks to Mr Fleming & Mr Gannon (two past students, who were more than willing to help with the demolition) and to Brendan Gildea for his assistance in the safe removal of the porch.

Exchange Student from China

Best wishes to Kathy (KiaXin He) who has now returned to her home in China after spending three months with us here in DCS. During her time here with us, she had the opportunity of learning our culture, our language and attending classes. It was a pleasure to have had her with us.

Also, safe travels to our 2nd-year student, Hannah Kenny, who has now travelled back to China on a reciprocal exchange with Kathy for the summer. I hear Hannah is thoroughly enjoying experiencing Chinese culture, learning some of the Chinese language and she has already visited the Great Wall of China.

End of Year Awards 2019

Well done to all the students, staff and parents of our school on another successful year in DCS. This was, yet again, a year of outstanding academic performances, excellent attendance achievements and remarkable extra-curricular successes. We were delighted to welcome our special guess, Mr Joe Healy, IFA President, to present awards to some of our students to acknowledge their excellence in various areas of school life.

Special thanks to the students, staff, parents and the broader community of Dunmore for all the support, help and commitment they have given to our school throughout the year. I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather and the break from school. D.Quinn,

Farm Safety Awareness Talk

“It is better to lose a minute in life, than to lose your life in a minute.” is the motto that our Senior Cycle students were encouraged to embrace after they attended a talk by farm accident survivor and native of Eyrecourt Mr. Peter Gohery. He gave gave two farm safety awareness talks in Dunmore Community School on Friday 5th April. He spoke tothe students and teachers about the horrific life changing accident he suffered. He gave them advice and made them aware of the potential dangers that are associated with machinery ( cars, tractors etc) if they are not handled in a safe and careful manner. Hopefully everyone at the talk will take on board his very important message.
