The Department of Education has been in contact with the Leaving Cert Class of 2020 and the LCA class of 2021 in relation to the reopening of the Calculated Grades Portal in the past few days.

Leaving Certificate Applied Students Need to complete the registration process
All other Leaving Certificate Students Need to complete the registration process AND confirm their subject levels
Unfortunately, we will be unable to hold our annual Senior Cycle options night this year due to the uncertainty of COVID-19. Therefore, we will be using an online application process. The link to the application form will be sent to all 3rd year and TY student school based email accounts tomorrow morning. The form requires both the student and parent/guardian to complete and I would advise doing so from a laptop or computer. The form can only be filled in from the link sent to the students’ email account. I will text parents to notify them when this link has been emailed.
Prior to the filling in the application form, please have a browse of the presentations from last year and some websites of relevance that will assist you in making the decision on what option your child should apply for.
Please get in contact if you have any queries at principal @dunmorecs.ie or mscarry @dunmorecs.ie or deputyprincipal @dunmorecs.ie
PLEASE NOTE: DEADLINE FOR COMPLETED APPLICATION FORM IS THURSDAY the 26th MARCH.

Congrats to all our students who graduated last Thursday. We celebrated their achievement by holding a LC/LCA Graduation Mass and Awards Ceremony, followed by some light refreshments and tea.
We hope you enjoyed the evening in DCS and the rest of the night! Special congrats to our “Claudia Gavin Student of the Year” award winner Colin Comer, the “Anne Flynn Science Award” winner Leah Noone and the “Pat Heaney Music Award” joint winners Colin Comer, the Sports Star Awards Dylan Hanley and Alife Sheehy, and the inaugural Sisters of Mercy Award winner Chloe Fleming. Also congratulations to all our Award Winners and those who received Certificates yesterday, and of course to all our students who graduated on the night. We are very proud of all of you.
On Thursday 2nd May, the LCA 6th Yr class and Ms. Scarry were given a very informative talk by Mary and Geraldine from the Dunmore Conference. The two ladies spoke about the work that the local St. Vincent de Paul Society does, how they fundraise and how someone could volunteer to join. The talk took place as part of a key assignment for Vocational Preparation and Guidance subject in the LCA programme.
