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😃

2nd Yr Petit-déjeuner Français!!

On Friday Ms. Maher and her 2nd year French class prepared a beautiful French breakfast!


The smell of fresh baguettes,  croissants, elaborate cheeses filled the corridor outside as the sound of French melodies was the perfect backdrop to their French conversations. Hot chocolate warmed all in this very enjoyable morning.  Even teachers savoured the leftovers 😊 Well done on bringing French culture to DCS on a cold Friday in December!
