Huge congrats to our U19 Girl’s Basketball team who reached the semi-final stage in the Regional league. We came up against a very experienced Colaiste na Coiribe side who have many club city players. Our girls worked so hard but it wasn’t our day. Well done to all girls involved and be proud of getting so far in the competition and all your efforts.
Huge congrats to our U16 Girls Basketball team who had a convincing win over Glenamaddy in the Regional Semi-Finals hosted by our school last Thursday. A fabulous display of structured defence secured the girls’ rightful place in the Regional Final later on that same day. Our girls battled till the bitter end against a very strong St. Nathys side but it wasn’t meant to be as the opposition coming out on top. The top 2 teams in the region get to All-Ireland playoffs and we are so proud our girls qualify after all their hard work and the very best of luck to you all!
In line with current best practice, Dunmore Community School is going Cashless. Going forward, payments to the school will be issued via text and email and payment can be made online and a receipt issued instantly.
Please note, payments may be made via the text sent to you, or via the email link sent out. We have also installed a debit card payment machine in the office for anyone having difficulty with the online method. However, we have no doubt you will find the method we have chosen is the simple, safe and extremely user-friendly.
We intend to roll this feature out with our current 3rd and 6th years for the upcoming Mock Fees later this week/early next week.
Our 1st, 2nd and 5th Year Christmas Exams 2019 are taking place between Thursday 12th December – Thursday 19th December in the preassigned classes as outlined in the attached timetables. The majority of the exams are taking place in the double classes/single classes with English, Irish and Maths taking place in the Auditorium.
Best of luck to our u16 team who play Merlin College tomorrow in Ballinfolie Castlegar Neighbourhood Centre at 1.40pm. This group of third years are used to playing in finals & are hoping to win their third final in a row. They had a very convincing win in the semi final.
