Leaving Cert Christmas Dinner 2018

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.

Christmas Market

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.
