First Year Boys reach Regional Basketball final

Our 1st Year (red) boys basketball team topped their group and then faced Headford in the semi-final. Dunmore had home advantage and we got an opportunity to use our new scoreboard which was purchased with funds from our Students Council. We were  slow to settle before we got to grips with the strong Headford side but took control in the second half & won the game 32-9. We will play St. Raphael’s Loughrea in the Regional final in NUIG on 21st March

School Dinners coming to DCS #FoodForSchool

Following on from the survey our Students Council have completed with the student body, you have overwhelmingly voted in favour of having the canteen supply school dinners at lunchtime. Our canteen company #FoodforSchool is delighted to start providing dinners on Monday the 12th of November. The school will subsidise it for the 1st week or 2, so dinners will be available for €2 and then return to the full price of €4.

This will be for a trial period to gauge the student and parent interest in ordering dinners. Further information when you return to school next week.
