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.
Special thanks to Mary Mullin and her team, including our TY’s, on the organisation of the hugely successful Christmas Bingo that is being held in the sports centre today. Also thanks to all who sponsored prizes, bought lines and attended today to help raise funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital and a defib for DCS.
Aoibhe Burke and Andrea Delaney participated in the Soroptimists Public
Speaking Competition in Ballinasloe today. Both girls acquited themselves
brilliantly. They were competing against students from Tuam,
Mountbellew and Ballinasloe. The girls did not go through to the next
round, an honour that went to two very experienced competitors.
Each participant was presented with a Newbridge silver bracelet. Well
