Congratulations and well done to our brilliant LCA1 students who organised a Michelin Star worthy 3 course meal for their teachers today. It was no easy feat but they were fantastic, a credit to themselves and to our school. Many thanks also Ann Marie, Sarah and Mary who were a great help as always.
Expressing gratitude has been shown to have positive effects on adolescents and adults. Recently, our first year CSPE class expressed their gratitude in a classroom project and our creative Transition Years put an artistic design to it. Our Gratitude board is on display beside our chapel. Our TY’s and first years are very proud of their work.
Thank you to all who participated in this collaboration, a special thanks to Amy burns and her team who created and painted our gratitude board, and to Ms Brogan who oversaw the project.

Well done to our TY Debating Team who took part in a debate on Friday with St. Jarlaths. This was their 1st venture into Debating, but they performed excellently. Congrats to Sean Ryan who won best speaker, and Niamh Doorey and Jane Ryder who were on the winning opposition team. Special thanks to Ms Donnellan for all her work with our team and in organising the competition.
A little later than planned, our Leaving Certs enjoyed the Annual Christmas Dinner today in the School Auditorium prepared by our LCA students and some TY’s and expertly served by the LCA students and staff of DCS. Luckily, there was plenty left over, so the hardworking LCA class where also able to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
On behalf of the Leaving Certs I’d like to thank all the students and staff involved in planning and preparing today’s lunch. Well done on a job well done.
Thanks to our Students Council and the TY students for all the hard work they put into making our last day of this term such an enjoyable and fun-filled day with a table Quiz and Bingo. Also thanks to Ms Walsh and the choir for the fantastic carol service we had the pleasure of listening to.
