Original Art Work by 1st year Visual Art students

These are some of the hand-made original etchings designed and made by first year Visual Art students. After much experimentation with the Christmas theme, the students developed the etching and learned the ancient skill of Printmaking, in this case an intaglio dry point etching. They will be for sale at the Christmas market in Dunmore on Saturday. Perhaps someday one of these students will be a world famous artist and you can be the proud owner of a priceless work of art😃

Internet Safety Course – Thursday 14th Dec

1st Year Mentoring – Save the Day

A mentoring Meeting for all 1st years will be held on December 4th after school. An appointment time will shortly be issued to you. We ask that you and your child attend to meet with your child’s assigned mentor.

What is a Mentor?

A mentoring teacher is appointed to each student in 1st year to see how the student has settled in and to discuss with you any difficulties they may be having. Please note this meeting is not concerned with subjects or academic progress. It is important that each child is represented by a parent/guardian.

The Community bid a fond farewell to the Mercy Sisters

A lovely celebration was held in the parish church last week to pay tribute to the Mercy Sisters for their trojan work in the parish throughout their time in Dunmore. Their friendship, kindness and the enormous contribution they made to education in our school will always be remembered. Archbishop Michael Neary and Fr. Fergal captured our thoughts so eloquently in their kind words. It was a fitting tribute to the  Mercy Sisters  that our students and staff took part in the prayers and choir on the night . Thanks to all involved . Wishing Sr. Bernardine, Sr. Joan and Sr. Annemarie many blessings in their new homes. There will be many fond memories throughout the parish and their legacy will never be forgotten.
