Parents Council Annual Fun Table Quiz

Our Parents’ Council are holding a Family Fun Table Quiz on the 6th Dec at 7:30 pm in the school. Please come along for a great night out with lots of fun, prizes and great craic. Our Quiz Master for the night is Mr Ollie Turner. Lots of spot prizes on the night – those that attended last year can testify to this.
Special thanks to all the local businesses that have so generously sponsored spot prizes for the night and to our Parents’ Council for organising this event. A Table of 4 is only €20.
Our Parents Council have put a lot of hard work into organising this quiz, so please come along and support them and your school. Please remember, all funds raised are to improve the school for all our students. Please spread the word and get your friends to come along to what has proven to be a fantastic fun night, that everyone who attends enjoys immensely.

Michael Flatley Retires from DCS

Congratulations and best wishes to our Caretaker, Michael Flatley, who retired today from Dunmore CS after 34 years of tireless service to our school. We wish him all the best of health and happiness for the future and thank him sincerely for his dedication and commitment to our school and for always being there for us all – staff, students and parents.

Also, best wishes to John Ryan who has taken over as our caretaker. We wish him all the best in his new role.

Opening of the School year Mass

A little later than normal, Dunmore CS had its opening school year mass today to pray for a successful year ahead. Special thanks to the religion department, the Choir, the readers, servers and all involved. Also well done to all our students who conducted themselves in such a respectful, reverent manner today.

 

St Vincent De Paul

The Society Of St Vincent de Paul helps thousands of families and individuals each year in Ireland. However they cannot do this without support through volunteering, donations and fundraising. This week DCS launched Junior SVDP under the direction of local  VDP Officer Mary Jessop. Our Transition Year members will meet regularly and be given opportunities to volunteer in their local community together with fundraising throughout the year. As well as making an invaluable difference in the lives of people in their local community our newest members will also experience living out their faith in a practical sense. Finally their participation in SVDP will contribute to the attainment of their Gaisce and JP11 Awards.
