Well done to all the students and staff involved in the organisation of Friday’s Fun activities. An extremely enjoyable morning was had by all in attendance. Attached are a few photos taken during the day.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Dunmore Community School’s students, parents/guardians and staff a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Peaceful year ahead and thank you for your support during 2018. DQuinn.
Special Thanks to our TY students, our LCA students, Ms Griffiths and Ms McManus for organising, preparing and serving a lovely Christmas Dinner in the Auditorium today for the LC and LCA students, their teachers, yearheads and management. The dinner was followed by a little impromptu Table Quiz to prolong the festivities and help stay out of class a little longer. It was a well deserved and welcome break from all the studying and exams of the past few weeks.
Well done to all involved in the Carol Service tonight in Garrafrauns church, where we were celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Carol Service in Dunmore parish. It featured performances by our three church choirs Dunmore, Garrafrauns and Kiltevna along with wonderful performances from four primary school choirs- Dunmore NS, Garrafrauns NS, Ballinlass NS and Gortnaleam NS….and finally our very own DCS school choir.
This year’s performance Christmas Canon featured our 60-strong mixed choir accompanied by staff members Annette Walsh on piano, Sinead Fitzpatrick on flute, Sandra Higgins Soprano, students Ethan, Alex, Dara, Megan and Lucyna on guitars and past pupil Meabh Sheridan on violin. Congrats to all our students on such a wonderful performance and also to all the talented singers in our local National Schools. You were all fantastic.
Looking forward to our school Carol service on Friday morning Dec 21st for more beautiful carols.
The Transition Year and Second Year Class had a busy week last week preparing for the annual Christmas market organised by Dunmore Town Traders. This year we sold a wide variety of products. We all co-operated and worked well to ensure the success of the project. We really enjoyed being involved in this community project. A huge thank you to Ms McManus, Ms O’Reilly, Ms Fallon and Ms Scarry.
A snapshot of our 1B Geography class displaying excellent group work and communication skills as they debate (for/against) “It’s not earthquakes that kill people but poorly built buildings”. Debating is one of the many group work activities our 1st year Geog classes engage in facilitated by Ms.Canny & Ms.Maher.
