End of Term Fun – Happy Christmas 2020

Well done to the Student Council who went to great lengths to organise fun activities for our end of term yesterday. Family Fortunes, Kahoot quizzes and raffles were all organised and ran by them and provided lots of fun and prizes to end the term. Unfortunately, our usual gathering in the auditorium for Carols, prayer service and Bingo couldn’t take place due to Covid restrictions but thanks to the efforts of many of our school community we were able to have an enjoyable day to mark the end of a long hard term.

Thanks to the Religion and Music departments for organising our Christmas Carol and Prayer Service which was prerecorded and played to all classrooms and also huge thanks to the Student Council and the TYs who went to great lengths to ensure our school was decorated beautifully and in festive cheer for the past few weeks.

I would also like to congratulate and thank the student and staff body for the efforts they have made to keep COVID in-check in our school since August. Your continued cooperation and efforts are greatly appreciated by all in Dunmore CS and the wider community.

I would also like to thank you all for the resilience and support you have all offered each other since October. It has been a very difficult few months for our school community, one where we relied on each other for help, friendship and support. I encourage all students to please continue this with each other over the Christmas break and to reach out to parents/guardians/DCS staff or appropriate services if they need extra support. Please remember Pages 25 & 26 of your Journal for relevant supports.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our students, staff, parents/guardians, past students and the wider community of Dunmore Community School a Happy Christmas and a healthy and peaceful 2021.

DQuinn.

DCS TY take part in a Re-Design Ireland Workshop

Transition Year students took part in a workshop run by James Fahy from Re-design Ireland. The aim of this workshop was to get them to become more environmentally conscious about their consumer choices and to be aware of their daily carbon footprint.
This course is designed to aid students in applying their learning to real-life situations and fostering problem-solving skills for real-world problems as the Earth continues to heat in the coming decades.

Halloween Covid-19 Facemask Competition Winners

Congratulations to the winners, participants, and organisers of the TY DCS Halloween Covid-19 Mask Competition.

JOTS 17 – 5 DCS students included

We are delighted to announce that the 17th edition of the Journal of the Old Tuam Society will be in shops on Friday 6th of November. This year we have five students from Dunmore Community School whose articles were chosen to be published. Earlier in the year we entered Break the Seal competition and as part of this competition, we linked in with Ms. Anne Tierney President of the Old Tuam Society. She was so impressed with our students work that she agreed to publish five of our articles. They include a mystery plane landing in Lissybroder Dunmore in 1962, the murder of Thomas McEver in May 1921, a student’s great grandfather in the IRA. A family letter from Private James Quinn from Darrary, Dunmore and our student who came third place in the overall competition whose essay is called Trailblazing Tinkers. Normally there is an annual launch for JOTS but due to COVID restrictions, this cannot take place. Amazingly this edition has over 120 pages. Eurospar in Dunmore will be selling the JOTS magazine. We hope you enjoy our students work!
