ICT Upgrade – Important Notice to Students

Over the Summer all PCs in the school will be upgraded to Windows 10 and a new server installed.

As a result of this, any files you have saved on the Computers or on the Server will be deleted. Please ensure that, before the 2nd of June, you have copied all files you will need next year onto a USB key. This is especially relevant to LCVP students.

We are also migrating to Office365 and as a result, we will also be closing your Google Account – so any files saved on your Google Drive/Email should also be downloaded onto a USB key.

We are very proud of our TY girls and would like to thank Ms.Higgins for her work with the choir and also Ms Clesham for her help throughout the preparations.

6km Walk

Dunmore Community School recently held a six-kilometre walk to raise funds for the school. The walk was supported by the Parents Council and all students, teachers and many parents took part in what has become an annual event.  Three generations of one family took part in the run. Student Sean Ryan was joined by his mother Jean Coleman and his grandfather Paddy Coleman. At the lively age of 92, Paddy completed the 6km in style, running the last few yards into the school to the applause of all gathered to cheer him on.
