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!
Best of luck to the students, crew and production Team of our Musical “The Sound of Music” who perform their opening Matinee this morning @ 10 am in front of 280 primary school students, their teachers and our first years. We, as a staff, are very proud of the hard work, dedication and commitment of our students involved with the musical. I assure you of a thoroughly enjoyable show for all who attend, going by the fantastic full dress rehearsal on Tuesday. Please note their are some tickets still available for the 3 nights but they are selling fast. Those attending please be seated by 7:45 pm each night.
Special thanks to Mary Mullin and her team, including our TY’s, on the organisation of the hugely successful Christmas Bingo that is being held in the sports centre today. Also thanks to all who sponsored prizes, bought lines and attended today to help raise funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital and a defib for DCS.
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.

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.
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.
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.
