Internet Safety Talk for Parents

Reminder: Ms Helen Butler is giving an Internet Safety Talk on Thursday 11th April at 7:30pm in the school auditorium, It was organised for 1st year parents, however, all parents are invited to attend this important talk. We feel there is a great need to inform everyone in the area of Internet and Mobile phone safety, as this is an ever-changing landscape. After attending this talk we hope parents will go away with some relevant digital safety tips and advice. We look forward to seeing you there.

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.
