Blood Brothers the musical

Following the enormous success of our own musical ‘The Sound of Music’, 22 of our students jumped at the opportunity to travel to Castlebar to see the musical ‘Blood Brother’s’ yesterday – a great afternoon was enjoyed by all!

Blood brothers is currently on show in the TF Royal in Castlebar. It is an extraordinary production with some phenomenal acting, singing, staging and energy. We all came away in awe. Definitely offering some food for thought for our next production.

Dunmore Community School host a very successful Careers Expo 2019

Ms. Scarry assisted by the Transition Year and LCA students in Dunmore Community School hosted a very successful Careers Expo in the school on Friday 8th March. Our 3rd year, TY, LCA, 5th and 6th year students got a fantastic opportunity to speak to representatives from 30 information stands which included third level colleges and universities, financial institutions and local construction and pharamaceutical industries. It was wonderful to welcome parents to participitate in this very informative event as well as students and staff from other post primary schools in the local area. Now that a little time has passed since the event hopefully students have had time to process the information they gathered and this is helping them make informed choices about TY, LCA and senior cycle subject choice options. Our 6th year students can also use this information to help them prepare for upcoming PLC interviews, decide on CAO ‘change of mind’ options or deciding on apprenticeships that they are interested in.

Senior Cycle Options Night

Thanks to everyone that came along tonight. We hope you found it informative but if you have any queries, please feel free to contact the office or send us an email.

I would especially like to thank our 3 students, Aryn, Andrea and Chloe, who spoke about their experiences of TY and LCA.

As promised, please find links to the presentations, relevant links and the Subject choice explanation video and please get in contact if you have any queries.

It’s a wrap… The Sound of Music concludes.

Well done to all involved in our fantastic production… The Sound of Music.

After weeks of practice, it’s had to believe that our 4 shows are over. We want to congratulate our fantastic students on this wonderful production. All of their time, hard work and dedication over the past few weeks have certainly paid off and made this musical the huge success that it was. I have no doubt you will look back on these past few weeks as some of your best memories from secondary school in years to come.

Well done to you all, you should all be very proud of yourselves!
