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😃
We will be holding Internet Safety Workshops for our 1st & 2nd students and an internet Safety Seminar for our 3rd & TY Years on Thursday the 14th December.
Please see http://zeeko.ie/secondary-schools/ for further details.
These workshops will be based on a ‘Trend Survey’ of students, so it will be tailored to suit each group.
Please note we will also be holding an information evening for parents that evening at 7:00pm.
We are reprinting our school prospectus and we would again like to include some of Dunmore Community School’s past students who have recently graduated from 3rd level.
If you have graduated this year and you would like to be included, we would appreciate if you could email us a graduation photograph along with your name, your course name and the course/college you have graduated from. (Photos can be emailed to – dquinn @ dunmorecs.ie) before the 10th December.
Please share and tag this with fellow past students that have graduated this academic year.
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.
On behalf of the Parents Council and all of us here in Dunmore CS, we would like to express our gratitude to all the sponsors of our Table Quiz last week. Your generosity and support to our school is greatly appreciated. (E&OE)
There will be a Mass of Remembrance for deceased Past Pupils and Staff from Incarnate Word College, Dunmore Vocational School and Dunmore Community School on Monday, 20th November in Dunmore Community School at 7.30pm. All are welcome.
